LETTER: ‘Thank you Normandy Park for saving energy, one LED light bulb at a time!’


[EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a Letter to the Editor, written by a Reader. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The Normandy Park Blog nor its staff:]

Puget Sound Energy would like to thank Normandy Park residents for your interest in energy efficiency! Through Saturday, September 24, PSE is offering every residential customer in Normandy Park a free LED bulb. Hundreds of residents have already taken advantage of this offer and the LED bulbs are starting to arrive in mailboxes.

Why does switching out just one incandescent bulb to an LED matter?

LED bulbs can save you money! Switching just the five most-used lights in your home — for instance, the lights in your living room, kitchen, and entryway, which are probably in use closer to four hours a day — could save you around $44 a year on your electric bill.

LED lighting can also reduce electrical consumption by up to 90 percent over incandescent bulbs. If all of our customers in Normandy Park switched just one bulb to an LED, it would save more than 1.7 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually, equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions from 251 passenger vehicles driven for one year. This small change can make a big impact.

PSE offers dozens of different ways you can start saving today. From swapping out light bulbs or installing a smart thermostat, to recycling an old appliance or upgrading your home’s heating system, windows and insulation, there’s an instant discount, rebate or program for everyone and every home.

If you have not taken advantage of the free LED offer, there’s still time! For more information about how to get your free LED and other PSE programs and services for residential customers, visit pse.com/savenow.
