Customers are loving savings on energy efficient products
From September 11 to December 6 participating retailers will be giving instant savings rebates at the register for customers buying ENERGY STAR® LED lights, programmable thermostats, low-flow showerheads and other items.
How do customers feel about saving money while reducing energy consumption?
“They just love it!” said Jill Peters, manager of Alberton Home Hardware Building Centre about efficiencyPEI’s Instant Savings Program.
Peters, who also manages the O’Leary Home Hardware said the Instant Savings Program has been very successful in both stores. “We are very pleased with the success of the program and the sales have increased each year that we have participated.”
ENERGY STAR LED lightbulbs are on sale now, $2-4 off per package. These bulbs use only 10 per cent of the electricity of an incandescent bulb and come in a variety of colour temperatures so you can choose what you want.
While the Fall Instant Savings specials wrap up on December 6, there is a year round rebate that includes savings on eligible appliances like refrigerators, clothes washers, and WaterSense certified toilets. When you buy an ENERGY STAR® Dehumidifier the amount of the rebate is $30.
When you purchase the ENERGY STAR® Smart thermostat, you will receive $100 off. These thermostats control the heat in your home from your phone, and it will learn your behaviours and adjust your energy use accordingly. Just set it based on your own schedule and your home heating will be regulated.
”Everyone loves saving money,” said Peters. “And in the long run we are also reducing our energy costs and by doing so improving life for everyone.”
