Energy efficient lighting giveaway

Light promo

A local partnership initiative is shining the light on energy efficiency with a free LED bulb giveaway.

The Wairoa District Council, The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) and Wairoa New World are part of a community-based lighting project that will see Wairoa households given five free new energy efficient LED light bulbs.

Wairoa Mayor Craig Little said the initiative means local people will save on their power bills, brighten their homes and all while looking after the environment and at no cost to each householder.

LED lighting lasts for at least 10-years and each LED that replaces the older style incandescent bulb can save you between $100-$300 over its life.

Letters with a voucher for your free LED bulbs will be sent to household occupiers and can be redeemed at New World Wairoa supermarket between October 23 and Nov 1.

All you have to do is check whether you have bayonet or screw fitting bulbs and then head to Wairoa’s New World Supermarket to redeem your voucher.

As soon as you install your new bulbs you will start saving money.

Mr Little described the giveaway as a great initiative. “Thousands of households and families will benefit from this project which will mean cost savings for consumers while helping to save the environment.

Switching to LED lighting also supports New Zealand’s climate change efforts by reducing electricity use.

“Thank you to EECA for funding the project and Wairoa New World for its support.”
