The Power Tie-ins Program is a new granting program delivered by Creative BC for Reel Green™’s Clean Energy Committee. The Committee is investing up to $2,500 in electric grid tie-in projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in high volume filming areas. The tie-in projects will enable film crews to tie-in to electric power grids, thereby reducing the use of diesel-fueled generators on film sets.
For every single day that a production replaces a diesel fueled generator with a power tie-in to clean electric energy, production will save approximately 350 litres of diesel fuel and reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 938.35 kg CO2e/Day.
Open for applications
EXTENDED – March 1, 2023
The Clean Energy Committee will work closely with stakeholders to achieve sustainability goals and provide more access to grid tie-ins to reduce the industry’s reliance on diesel generators.
The fund is available to the following applicants:
