Rock the bulb: PSE bulb exchange is this weekend at North Bend Ace

PSE residential electric customers in the Snoqualmie Valley and surrounding area can save energy and money by participating in Rock the Bulb: The Re-Energize Tour 2012 at the North Bend Ace Hardware, 330 Main Ave S, June 23-24, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

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 (CFL) bulbs, choosing from among five different styles.

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, including the North Bend Farmer's Market, 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.

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.
