Corvallis is one of 52 communities competing for the Georgetown University Energy Prize!
The Georgetown University Energy Prize is a five million dollar competition that is challenging small- to medium-size cities to work with their local governments, residents, and utilities to achieve innovative, replicable reductions to residential and municipal gas and electricity use.
HOW YOU CAN HELP…
Corvallis residents can help their community win the prize by picking three energy-saving actions to try for a month, and earning Energy Prize Points on the Communities Take Charge web site. The web site provides helpful information on cutting energy use. When Corvallis wins the $5 million Energy Prize, each Energy Prize Point will turn into a raffle ticket for fantastic prizes including one $10,000 grand prize, two $5,000 prizes, five $2,000 prizes, and ten $1,000 prizes!
Go to Communities Take Charge today to reduce your energy use, help our community win $5 MILLION DOLLARS and gain a chance to win up to $10,000!
Throughout the competition, Corvallis will be building on the successful renewable energy and energy-efficiency programs that are already in place locally such as Seeds for the Sol, which provides no-interest loans for solar electric installations, and Clean Energy Works Oregon, which provides whole-home energy upgrades. Corvallis residents who live in single-family homes can also receive up to 16 free LED and CFL light bulbs by contacting Energize Corvallis.For more information about Corvallis’ efforts and ways you can get involved, please visit EnergizeCorvallis.org; follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/EnergizeCorvallis); or contact Carly Lettero, Energize Corvallis Director at 541-758-6198.
