SEATTLE -- Energy Resource Fairs will be held at the Central Area Motivation Program (CAMP) offices on Wednesday, April 18, and Saturday, April 21. The fairs provide information and promote programs and services available to help eligible families, senior citizens and people with disabilities cope with utility rate increases during the energy crisis. At the fairs, customers can apply for special utility rates and learn ways to save money at energy conservation workshops. Each attendee at the energy conservation workshop will receive a free compact fluorescent bulb that uses 75% less energy than a regular bulb and lasts 7 to 10 times longer. The fluorescent bulbs are recommended for porch lights or any lights that are typically in use for three hours or longer.
