Puget Sound Energy’s light bulb exchange coming to the Snoqualmie Valley
June 27, 2012
Puget Sound Energy residential electric customers in the Snoqualmie Valley can save energy and money by participating in Rock the Bulb: The Re-Energize Tour 2012 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 23-24 at the North Bend Ace Hardware, 330 Main Ave. S.
Customers who attend Rock the Bulb can exchange up to 15 of their old inefficient, incandescent bulbs for the same number of free compact fluorescent light bulbs, choosing from among five different styles, according to a press release from PSE.
Throughout the summer, PSE’s Rock the Bulb Street Team and Re-Energize van will be visiting a variety of local community events, festivals and public locations, engaging customers with free CFL bulbs and Rock the Bulb Backstage Passes.
By bringing their Backstage Pass to the Rock the Bulb exchange event, with their account number, customers will receive two bonus CFL bulbs, for a total of 17 free CFL bulbs.
Customers can also look for a Backstage Pass in their PSE bill or by postcard from PSE, according to the press release.
ENERGY STAR-qualified CFL bulbs use up to 78 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer.
By replacing the 15 most frequently used inefficient lights in the home with CFL bulbs, households can save more than $600 in energy costs over the life of the bulbs, according to the press release.
“We are excited to bring Rock the Bulb: The Re-Energize Tour 2012 to customers who are ready to save energy and money by switching to CFL bulbs,” said Jason VanNort, PSE’s local government and community relations manager.
Rock the Bulb: The Re-Energize Tour 2012 will distribute 100,000 free CFL bulbs to PSE residential customers at four weekend bulb-exchange events from June through September at local retailers and through outreach at local community events in the utility’s service area.
