SCEEP to Shed Light on Energy Efficiency at Earth Day Festival

The South County Energy Efficiency Partnership (SCEEP) is participating in the Community Environmental Council’s 2014 Earth Day Festival, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, April 26 and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, April 27 at Alameda Park in Santa Barbara.

SCEEP will hold an hourly drawing for a free Light Emitting Diode (LED) light bulb from Southern California Edison, and will also offer complimentary energy-savings kits with water-saving tools from Southern California Gas Company at booth No. 508 while supplies last.

At the SCEEP booth, volunteers will demonstrate how much energy it takes to power incandescent light bulbs versus energy-saving CFLs and LEDs utilizing a special hand-crank device. Visitors can stop by the booth to find out how to apply for rebates for energy-saving appliances through Southern California Gas Co. and learn about home upgrade rebates through Energy Upgrade California.

Throughout the Earth Day Festival, SCEEP will give out information on energy efficiency for residents and businesses. SCEEP will also be promoting a special refrigerator pickup taking place May 17-18. Qualifying customers of Southern California Edison can sign up to have their old, working refrigerator picked up and recycled for free and receive a $35 incentive. Terms and conditions apply.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
