SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Clean Energy will hold a “Light Swap” from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Chapman Library, 577 S. 900 West.
During the event, residents of the Poplar Grove area can swap five conventional light bulbs for five LED bulbs at no cost. Residents also learn about other low- and no-cost ways to save money on energy bills and improve local air quality. Rocky Mountain Power donated the nearly 800 energy-efficient bulbs.Comment on this story
According to the nonprofit advocacy organization, the campaign is the first step in a broader effort to help underserved communities save money and energy.
“We are ramping up efforts to help more Utah families become energy efficient,” Kevin Emerson, energy efficiency program director for Utah Clean Energy, said in a statement. “Switching just five LED bulbs saves each family around $79 per year or $1,300 over the lifetime of the bulbs.”
The program will continue to reach underserved communities in Salt Lake City through May. For more information, visit UtahCleanEnergy.org.
