The board, management and employees of Homer Electric Association would like to thank the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank, the Homer Food Pantry, the Homer, Soldotna and Kenai Salvation Army stores, Ninilchik Traditional Council, Seldovia Village Tribe, Port Graham Village Council, and the Nanwalek IRA for participating in our first Kick inCan drive to replace 7,000 incandescent light bulbs with 7,000 energy saving CFLs (compact fluorescent bulbs). Preliminary results indicate that together we touched 1,400 families on the peninsula. The comments and feedback we received indicated this project was a huge success.
A special thanks to Linda Swarner, Diane Jessica, Captains Mark and Michelle Thielenhaus, Captain Craig Fanning, Bob Crowley, Violet Yeaton, Rod Hilts, Michael Opheim and Vincent Evans for your enthusiasm and willingness to collect the incandescent bulbs, your patience when the trash cans were full to overflowing as we made our rounds to empty them, for giving up valuable space in your offices for storing the bulbs, and for all the volunteers' time to distribute the bulbs to those that could benefit the most from this project.
The HEA WiseWatts team was pleased to have an opportunity to work along side these agencies and their volunteers knowing that we have done a little something to help consumers reduce their electric bills, and improve quality of life.
Thank you again for helping HEA take this simple idea for conserving precious resources and sharing energy savings to the community. We look forward to continuing to be a part of your energy solutions into the future!
