Pepco Helps District Residents See the Light to Saving Energy and Money
Washington - Pepco announces that District residents now have the opportunity to purchase Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs at reduced prices from stores within their community. Pepco has selected Honeywell Utility Solutions as the implementation program manager. They will run the energy efficiency and new environmentally friendly green technologies conservation program for residential customers in the District of Columbia.
This is the initial phase of the energy-efficiency program that Pepco will offer to District of Columbia residential customers. The second phase of the program will offer rebates on selected high energy efficient appliances such as window air conditioners, refrigerators and electric water heaters.
More than 40 hardware, drug and food stores are expected to offer the Pepco discount of $1.50 on select single bulbs and $3 off multi-packs. All bulbs are ENERGY STAR® qualified.
"This program supports President Barack Obama's vision for a new energy economy that will transform the way we use energy," said Thomas Graham, President of the Pepco region. "This program will expand the ability for residents to purchase these light bulbs, which save energy, save money and help save our environment."
The initial participating retailers are The Home Depot and True Value Hardware. Additional retailers Rite Aid, ACE Hardware, CVS, Giant Food and Safeway stores are targeted later this summer. Customers can check pepco.com periodically to review the active locations.
Pepco, a subsidiary of Pepco Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: POM), delivers safe, reliable and affordable electric service to more than 750,000 customers in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
