SaskPower is offering free engine block heater timers to SaskPower customers and CAA Members at Weyburn's CAA location, effective October 1.
According to SaskPower, plugging in your vehicle for just four hours is all it takes to start your vehicle. If every Saskatchewan resident used a block heater timer, SaskPower could save enough power to supply more than 5,000 homes - that's the equivalent of taking 8,500 cars off the roads.
A block heater timer can save customers up to $25 in electricity costs each year. To learn more, visit www.saskpower.com/efficiency.
Since 2011, SaskPower has provided more than 135,000 engine block heater timers to residents across Saskatchewan.
CAA Saskatchewan advises it's best to have vehicles plugged in when the temperature drops to -15 C. Additional winter automotive tips are available at caask.ca/car-care-tips. CAA Saskatchewan is pleased to participate in the SaskPower engine block heater program. It aligns with CAA's Thinking Green policies and programs that support reducing vehicle fuel consumption to help decrease greenhouse gas emissions.
