Pictou County Chamber partnering with Efficiency NS

Published on April 21, 2014

The Pictou County Chamber of Commerce and Efficiency Nova Scotia (ENS) have announced the signing of a partnership agreement to promote the popular ENS Business Solutions Program to the business community in Pictou County. 


The program has helped hundreds of businesses across the province save money through the efficient use of energy.

Jack Kyte, Executive Director of the Chamber said the partnership is a win – win for both organizations as it will bring value to Chamber members and will help Efficiency Nova Scotia add to its growing list of business clients.

“Several local businesses have already seen the benefits of the Efficiency program and we want to make sure our members understand how they can take part as well,” said Kyte. “The cheapest energy is the energy you do not use.”

Darryl Hill, Business Sector Manager at Efficiency Nova Scotia announced the partnership at the Chamber’s April Tech Social business mixer in New Glasgow last week.

He said that improving awareness of the Business Solutions Program is a key to its success.

“We promote the program and its benefits in a variety of ways but this is the first time we have teamed up with a chamber of commerce in this manner,” Hill said. “We hope this partnership serves as an example of what can be done with the help of other Chambers in the province. In fact, the Atlantic Provinces Chamber of Commerce has already offered to help us spread the word.”

The partnership is part of a growing number of value- added programs and activities offered by the local Chamber to its members.

“Our goal is to provide value to the business community,” said Kyte
