EPB gives LED lights to 1,000 households
EPB and TVA volunteers Friday distributed LED light bulb kits to 1,000 local families in need as part of United Way of Greater Chattanooga's Impact Days.
With eight energy-efficient bulbs in each kit, the new lights are projected to save the typical household up to $255 a year in electricity consumption and up to $1,275 over the life of the bulbs.
EPB Energy Pros and other volunteers from EPB and the Tennessee Valley Authority handed out the LED bulbs to those who had signed up for the free lighting. including many on the Low Income Heating Assistance Program (LIHEAP). The cumulative savings of all bulbs distributed during Impact Days will be more than $1.2 million, EPB officials said.
"Helping all of our customers get the most value from the energy they use is part of our mission to enhance quality of life for our customers and our community," EPB President David Wade said in a statement about Friday's giveaway program. "Switching to LED light bulbs is a quick and cost-effective way for our customers to measurably improve energy efficiency and save money."
