The Kitchen-Kuaick household is one of six families from across Canada competing in the Shell Canadian Geographic Energy Diet Challenge. The family that reduces its energy consumption the most before December 4th will win the competition.
The Kitchen-Kuaicks represent northern Canada and the challenges they face, especially when it comes to heating their home in sub-zero temperatures, are unique.

You might be surprised how many of their tips can help you reduce your own monthly power bill, regardless of where you live.
