Transition Salt Spring’s mandate is to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, which will insulate us against the inevitable economic, social and environmental disruptions which are being caused by the global reliance upon oil. It’s up to each of us to choose ways of participating that can include:
- COMMUNITY GARDEN PROJECTS and mentoring for gardeners;
- TRANSPORTATION INITIATIVES such as Car Stops, Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure, Ride-Sharing, and working with our community partners for more bike lanes and public transportation
- EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS that inform, mentor, and train people for the sustainable skills of the future, including: growing, storing, and processing food; reducing waste and re-purposing used items; developing practical hands-on skills so that local tradespeople and do-it-yourself-ers are less dependant upon the world economy
- SUSTAINABLE ENERGY INITIATIVES such as the Community Energy Group (solar panels and more), support for Electric Vehicle (EV) owners, solar hot water, and other sustainable practices
- a RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT program known as the TSS Enterprise Co-op (TSSEC) that supports eligible LOCAL projects and ventures such as the Salt Spring Abattoir, the Electric Vehicle Charging Station at ArtSpring, and the Booth Canal pathway
When you’re living on a fixed or low income, counts and you look at all of your spending to see where you can save. The little things do count.
One way to reduce expenses is by slashing spending on utility costs.
Maybe you’ve looked into ways to save energy and found that the upfront costs for some projects are too much to afford.
It might be worth a second look, especially when you consider some of the free services available through utility companies and through other affordable weatherization programs specifically designed for seniors and for those with low incomes.
For instance, low-income renters and homeowners in British Columbia have access to an array of free products and services that may include faucet aerators, water-saving showerheads, water heater pipe wrap, and door weather-stripping. In addition, some houses could qualify for more upgrades, including ENERGY STAR® refrigerators, wall, attic, and crawlspace insulation, and high-efficiency gas furnaces.

If you’re skeptical about whether small changes can have an impact on savings, consider these four energy-saving tips from Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro and Newfoundland Power
1. A 13 watt compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) can replace a 60 watt incandescent and it will last up to eight times as long. Replace incandescent bulbs with CFLs and save $35 over the life of each bulb.
2. Install a motion detector or timer on exterior lighting. Reducing the number of hours that four 100-watt floodlights are on each night from 12 to five hours could reduce energy costs by about $2 per week or $104 per year.
3. Wash laundry in cold water. A typical family could save about $72 a year by switching from hot to cold water.
4. Save about 10% of your hot water usage by insulating the hot water pipe leading from your water heater with pipe insulation.
