Valley Residents Lighting the Way to Energy Efficiency

first_imgHouseholds in the Annapolis Valley will soon be able to light for less. Beginning this weekend, April 20 to 22, residents that visit the Kentville Home Show can get one free compact florescent light bulb. The promotion is the first in a series of energy efficient lighting events scheduled around the province as part of SAVE, a Shared Atlantic Vision for Energy Efficiency. “The SAVE project is an excellent example of the four Atlantic provinces coming together to promote energy efficiency,” said Bill Dooks, Minister responsible for Conserve Nova Scotia. “This campaign will use various tactics to help Nova Scotians overcome barriers to energy efficient lighting.” During the four-province campaign, 97,000 compact florescent light bulbs will be distributed. Of those, Nova Scotia will distribute 45,000 bulbs through municipal electrical utilities, regional development authorities and community not-for-profit groups by September. Conserve Nova Scotia will distribute about 2,000 bulbs during the Kentville event. The Kentville Home Show is the largest home and renovation show in the Annapolis Valley. The home show runs all weekend at the Kentville Centennial Arena.last_img
