If someone knocks on your door and offers you a free light bulb, it may not be a scam. It could be Seattle City Light. Much of the Central District has been added to the utility’s Powerful Neighborhoods program, which aims to educate people about how they can save energy.
The program in the neighborhood will go from March 28 through May. From City Light:
City Light’s Powerful Neighborhoods conservation program is moving into a new area – the North Central District of Seattle. Program representatives will be going door to door to offer free compact fluorescent light bulbs, energy-saving showerheads, and faucet aerators. The program targets customers who may not have taken advantage of our conservation programs, including senior citizens, non-English-speaking households, and low-income customers. The new area is bordered by Denny Way/East Madison Street to the north, East Yesler Way to the south, Broadway to the west, and 34th Avenue to the east.
