With a mandate to provide reliable, affordable electricity, BC Hydro has also become a leading sustainable energy company, producing and delivering electricity in environmentally and socially responsible ways. In support of its mission, our team has been a long-time partner in creating and evolving the Power Smart for Schools e-learning platform, helping to bring conservation curriculum into the classroom.
Power Smart for Schools is the latest iteration of a digital product we’ve helped evolve over the past ten years. Taking a service design approach, we developed a strategy that aligns with the evolving needs of educators and a growing demand for diverse educational resources. The success of Power Smart for Schools is founded on a long-term vision, a roadmap to take us there, and a commitment to ongoing improvements as the way we educate students continues to evolve.
We developed the Power Smart for Schools platform as a custom web app, built on the Laravel PHP framework, allowing for the implementation of a modular system of back-end admin tools. This means greater control, freedom, and self-sufficiency for our client partners when it comes to the management of content.
