Free informational series to further energy efficient lighting education
Continuing its Free Information Series designed to help members “save their energy,” La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) will host a “Basics of Bulbs” workshop, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013, at the Lavenia McCoy Public Library in Bayfield. All those interested in learning more about new lighting technology are invited to attend. Lunch will be served.
“We are seeing more and more interest in learning about lighting,” said Ray Pierotti, project specialist who oversees lighting programs for LPEA. “And lighting technology continues to evolve - quickly. We will share the latest information with our members, and hope to answer a lot of questions, especially concerning how to identify the appropriate LED bulb for each application.”
As Pierotti notes, though the price for LEDs is dropping, the cost remains much higher than other lighting sources, so it pays for members to do their homework before purchasing. LPEA also offers a variety of lighting rebates for both residents and businesses, which helps mitigate the cost of changing out bulbs, and those options will be reviewed.
Because lunch will be served, those interested in attending are asked to RSVP to Pierotti, firstname.lastname@example.org or 970.382.7770.
