OTEC to hand out free energy-efficient LED lightbulbs to member-owners

EASTERN OREGON – (Release from OTEC)  Oregon Trail Electric Cooperative (OTEC) wants to help its member-owners light up their world with free energy-efficient and money saving lightbulbs!

Next Wednesday, September 1 and Thursday, September 2, OTEC member-owners can stop by any of OTEC’s four offices to pick up a free five-pack of LED lightbulbs valued at $25. 

LED lightbulbs are one of today’s most energy-efficient and rapidly developing lighting technologies. The ENERGY STAR rated LED lightbulbs that OTEC is handing out use at least 75% less energy and can last 25 times longer than incandescent lightbulbs.

“As a member-owned cooperative, we work hard to teach our member-owners the value of energy-efficiency,” said Joe Hathaway, OTEC’s Communications Manager. “We hope that with this giveaway of free LED lightbulbs, it sets our members down a path of keeping their homes energy efficient.” 

For those looking to upgrade their home, business, or agricultural equipment, OTEC also offers rebates for member-owners who invest in energy-efficient equipment, potentially saving that member hundreds of dollars. OTEC also offers rebates for those who buy their appliances or equipment locally! Find out more information about OTEC’S energy-efficiency rebate program at otec.coop/programs-rebates.
