Benton PUD passes out free light bulbs and energy tips

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA- With daytime temperatures expected to dip below freezing later this week, the Benton PUD says now is not the time to be stingy on the heat. 

 At today's Senior Day, PUD workers gave out information on energy efficiency, passed out free fluorescent light bulbs and signed up eligible seniors for 15 to 20 percent discounts on their energy bills.

Christie McAloon says the PUD wants to make sure seniors stay warm over the winter while making the most of their energy dollars.

"That's why we give out the free compact fluorescent light bulbs, we provide information on how to operate their heat pump efficiently, how to weatherize their house properly, and we have experts here to provide that information."

The PUD will hold another Senior Day from eight to noon tomorrow at the PUD auditorium in Prosser.
