Note: Under the BC Safety Standards Act, sec. 19.2 local governments receive reports on high electricity use from BC Hydro. Properties identified are reviewed in consultation with the local police force and an inspection notice may be placed on a property which allows the property owner 24 hours to contact the local government to arrange a special safety inspection for the property. If a hazardous situation is found, utilities can be shut off and the property’s occupancy permit can be revoked until the hazards are remediated.
