Town saves power and money with bulb change

New, power saving light bulbs save money for Qualicum Beach

Changing to lower energy lighting appears likely to save some big bucks for Qualicum Beach taxpayers.  

In a report to council, public works superintendent Al Cameron stated the conversion of the Community Hall’s 18 75-watt flood lamps with 15-watt LED units are expected to save $1,100 per year. The cost for the conversion was largely covered by a $1,874 Power Smart rebate grant from BC Hydro, leaving the municipality with an $896 installation  cost.

The savings at the Civic Centre are even higher. 

The change, which is expected to save the municipality $4,084 per year, was also partly funded by a BC Hydro rebate of $2,715, leaving the town to pay only $1,315 for the installation.        — Neil Horner
