Veridian to offer conservation advice and incentives this weekend in Belleville
Utility’s ‘Conservation Ambassadors’ making community appearances to promote conservation programs

Belleville, ON – Veridian’s Conservation Ambassadors will be in Belleville this weekend at the city’s Waterfront & Ethnic Festival – running July 7 to 10 at W. Zwick’s Park – to promote conservation programs that can help customers conserve energy, better manage their electricity costs and contribute to a culture of conservation.

Visitors to the Veridian booth can learn more about the new saveONenergy programs being offered by Veridian and funded by the Ontario Power Authority, including peaksaver® and Fridge & Freezer Pickup. The Conservation Ambassadors will explain the benefits customers can achieve by taking advantage of these energy-saving measures and incentives available by participating in these conservation programs.

“It’s important that we provide responsible energy conservation choices to our customers, and we’re looking forward to connecting with them during the summer tour,” said Eryn Wishnowski, Veridian’s residential conservation program manager. “The Conservation Ambassadors will have information and material on a wide range of topics, from valuable coupon booklets that provide discounts on energy-efficient products for the home to time-of-use decals, energy conservation handbooks and brochures. Veridian is committed to providing its customers with resources to help reduce their energy use and lower their energy bills.”

The coupon booklets are part of the saveONenergy initiative. Coupon eligible products include ENERGY STAR® qualified lighting and light fixtures; lighting control products along with heavy duty plug-in timers and advanced power bars; insulation such as weather-stripping, hot water pipe wrap and insulation blankets for electric water heaters; and other energy saving products. The coupons are valid through December 31, 2011 at participating retailers throughout the province.

“Veridian recognizes that conservation is a key piece of the puzzle when it comes to addressing Ontario’s electricity supply mix and protecting the environment,” commented Wishnowski. “In a time of rising energy costs, tightened family budgets and increasing attention to environmental impacts of energy use, Veridian’s delivery of innovative conservation programs will help customers better understand and manage the amount of energy they use throughout their entire home.”
