BC Hydro has unveiled a new program to give bill credits to customers evacuated due to wildfires.

BC Hydro says The Wildfire Evacuee Assistance Program will provide some financial relief to customers during a challenging time.

The company is working with authorities to identify customers within evacuated areas, and they will apply automatic credit to their accounts for electricity used during the period of the evacuation.

BC Hydro also says they will work with evacuated customers to defer bill payments, waive late payment charges, and set up flexible payment plans.
