Celebrate Earth Day with a Free Energy Savings Kit

Winooski, VT

In celebration of Earth Day and to encourage more Vermonters to take steps to use less energy in their homes, Efficiency Vermont is offering free Energy Savings Kits to its customers. Energy efficiency is the most cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The kits contain easy-to-install energy saving measures, and for a limited time also include wildflower seed packets from American Meadows for customers to support pollinator habitat around their homes.

“Climate change is a big problem and can feel overwhelming, but we can begin planting the seeds of change now,” said Jody Lesko, Efficiency Vermont Program Director. “We want to help our customers feel empowered by acting locally and taking even the smallest steps to make a positive impact; because those first small steps can lead to bigger steps down the road.”

The free kits have a retail value of about $47, and when installed will generate a roughly equal amount in annual energy cost savings. The kits include:
• 10 LED bulbs (40/60/75-watt equivalents)
• 1 low-flow showerhead
• 2 faucet aerators
• A bonus smart bulb or wildflower seed packets, while supplies last (UPDATE: Wildflower seed packets are no longer available).

Vermonters (outside of Burlington) who have not already received a kit, can request one at www.efficiencyvermont.com/kits. These kits are now also available for Burlington customers later this spring, through BED.
