MLA Michelle Mungall hosted a CleanBC Open House at the Creston & District Community Complex last Thursday to explain to constituents about how her government is committed to clean air and energy efficiency.
“People in Creston are committed to taking actions to reduce air pollution and protect our climate,” said Mungall. “Our government is reflecting those values in our CleanBC plan. We are helping people with upfront costs for electric vehicles and energy efficient home improvements. I invite people to come to the open house to learn more about these and other programs to reduce our carbon pollution.”
Government can spearhead change, she said, and economic incentives are important in the fight to reduce climate pollution.
“These aren’t nickel and dime incentives,” she said. “Buyers of electric vehicles can receive rebates of up to $5,000, and homeowners will find new financial assistance to make their homes more energy efficient.”
Also in attendance at the open house were representatives from Fortis BC, the West Kootenay Eco Society and the RDCK’s REEP EcoSave program, all of which partner with the province to promote the need for individuals to take action and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“We are charting a new path with CleanBC,” said Mungall. “We’re showing the world that a thriving economy is one that reduces greenhouse gas emissions while creating opportunities for people.”
