BELLEVUE, Wash.  – Puget Sound Energy residential electric customers in Kent and surrounding areas can save energy and money this summer by participating in “Re-Energize the Community” at 99 Ranch Supermarket at Great Wall Shopping Center on July 20, from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

This summer, PSE has launched “Re-Energize the Community” to distribute thousands of free ENERGY STAR®-qualified, energy-efficient compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs and WaterSense®-labeled premium-efficiency showerhead to PSE electric customers who take a pledge to start saving energy and money by installing their free CFL bulbs, showerhead and promising to recycle their old refrigerator or freezer through a PSE rebate program. Taking the energy-saving pledge is a simple way for people to make a personal commitment to install energy-saving products and to learn how to make their homes more energy-efficient.

“Re-Energize the Community events are aimed at bringing the whole community together to save energy,” said Cal Shirley, vice president of Customer Solutions for PSE. “These events provide a fun and educational setting to show our customers how small energy-saving changes at home make a large and positive impact on energy costs and usage.”

ENERGY STAR-qualified CFL bulbs use up to 78 percent less energy and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent light bulbs. WaterSense showerheads use less water than traditional showerheads while maintaining the same water pressure. Water heating is the second largest energy user in the home. Using less water for showers reduces electricity or natural gas use to heat water. Once installed, these products will instantly start saving customers’ energy and money on utility bills.

In order to reach more customers, at some Re-Energize the Community events this summer PSE representatives fluent in several languages will be available to speak to non-English-speaking customers who are interested in learning more about energy efficiency. Re-Energize the Community multilingual representatives speaking Spanish, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Korean and Cantonese will be available at the following events and grocery stores this summer:

• July 20, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.: Kent, 99 Ranch Supermarket
• July 28, 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.: Silverdale Whaling Days
