Winners Get Energy Saving Prizes

SEATTLE Energy vampires are lurking in your home, sucking the electricity out of your outlets when you dont even know it. Now, its time to strike back.

Forks isnt the only place in Washington that knows how to handle vampires! In fact, just in time for Halloween, Seattle City Light is holding a Slay Your Energy Vampires video contest. The utility invites residential customers to upload videos of up to 90 seconds in length to show the energy vampires in their homes and what theyre doing to get rid of them.

We hope this contest will be a fun way for people to learn how they can save money by eliminating wasted energy, Superintendent Jorge Carrasco said. Im looking forward to watching their videos and perhaps picking up a few tips, too.

Videos will be accepted throughout September. All entrants will receive an energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulb. Public voting will determine 10 finalists. The grand prize winner, as well as second and third finishers will be picked by judges from the finalists and announced on or about Oct. 25. Creativity will be rewarded.

Grand prize is a home energy audit and an Energy Vampire Slayer Kit, which includes:
A home energy monitor
An energy-saving plug strip
A power timer
An LED task-lamp
An LED string of holiday lights
Second and third place winners will receive a slayer kit.

Rules are available on the City Light website http://www.seattle.gov/light/ or the contest site http://energyvampires.strutta.com//.

Seattle City Light is the 10th largest public electric utility in the United States. It has some of the lowest cost customer rates of any urban utility, providing reliable, renewable and environmentally responsible power to nearly 1 million Seattle area residents. City Light has been greenhouse gas neutral since 2005, the first electric utility in the nation to achieve that distinction.
