Lowe’s Helps Consumers Curb Rising Home Energy Costs
September 22, 2006
MOORESVILLE, N.C., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ — While homeowners across the country are feeling the sting of rising utilities and energy costs, many aren’t adequately equipped to combat the upsurge simply because they’re lacking information. That’s why Lowe’s is offering free energy clinics providing helpful tips and invaluable facts for saving money and saving energy this season.
Lowe’s will kick off its month-long dedication to saving energy beginning Saturday, Sept. 30 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. in its more than 1,275 stores nationwide. Consumers will have access to free energy savings information highlighting easy, practical energy solutions, as well as ENERGY STAR products that meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental and Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Energy (DOE).
Clinics, held each Saturday at 1 p.m. throughout October, are designed to teach customers how to winterize their homes, save energy and save money by incorporating energy conservation practices and products throughout various areas of the home. During the clinics, the first 15 participants at each store will receive a free energy savings tool kit including tips, product samples and a home energy checklist.
“The questions we really want to help answer for consumers are ‘why ENERGY STAR’ and ‘why now,'” said Bob Gfeller, Lowe’s senior vice president of marketing. “Furthermore, we want homeowners to walk away from these clinics with a take-charge attitude and the desire to become a true energy authority in their own home.” Entire story
