Eversource and the Town of Mansfield to Host Free Light Bulb Swap for Residents
Mansfield, Conn. – On Saturday, October 28, Eversource and the Town of Mansfield will host a free community-wide light bulb swap from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Mansfield Community Center, located at 10 South Eagleville Road in Storrs.
Mansfield residents, with identification, may bring up to five incandescent light bulbs in any condition and exchange them for new, energy-efficient ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs, free of charge while supplies last. Additional LEDs and lighting products will be available for purchase at a discounted rate.
Eversource experts will be at the event to connect customers with additional resources, including Home Energy SolutionsSM, a popular in-home energy improvement service provided by Eversource.
“The LED giveaway is a perfect opportunity for Mansfield residents to save money and energy at home,” said Eversource Energy Efficiency Spokesman Enoch Lenge. “LED lightbulbs are up to 90% more efficient than incandescent bulbs and last up to 25 times longer.”
In 2013, Mansfield joined Clean Energy Communities, the nationally-recognized Energize Connecticut program that helps Connecticut cities and town reach their energy goals and reduce municipal building energy consumption by 20 percent by 2018.
Through Clean Energy Communities, Mansfield residents that participate in Energize Connecticut programs – such as Home Energy Solutions – help the town earn points toward a grant. These “Bright Idea Grants” fund community-selected energy saving projects such as the upcoming light bulb swap, or the installation of new LED lighting at town hall or a school.
