TRUCKEE — The Sierra Business Council, in partnership with PG&E, will be offering a special rebate light swap program during the month of May to encourage merchants in Nevada, Placer and El Dorado counties to upgrade their existing lighting to energy efficient LED lighting, offering quality LED light bulbs for as low as $1.

The Spring Sierra LED Sale will educate merchants on the retail benefits of LED lighting, including the reduction of energy bills and maintenance costs, plus the overall enhancement of product displays. Allison Blansit, owner of the Aloft Art Gallery in Sonora, said, “We are extremely satisfied with the arrangement for supplementing costs through the PG&E program. The lighting in our gallery is magnificent, and we are a very satisfied customer!”

The Sierra Nevada Energy Watch Program serves small and medium businesses as well as municipalities in the following counties: El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sierra, Calaveras, Tuolumne, Mariposa, Alpine and Amador. It is a program of the Sierra Business Council (SBC), which fosters thriving communities in the Sierra Nevada via “on-the-ground” local projects that promote, develop and amplify the area’s social, natural and economic capital. More information on SBC’s projects can be found at sierrabusiness.org.

Typical lighting rebate programs require customers to wait up to 60 days for their rebates. Compellingly, this event allows participating businesses to receive an instant rebate from PG&E on their lighting upgrades and all at a dramatically reduced cost.

Businesses eligible for the rebate are commercial PG&E customers within the Nevada, Placer and El Dorado counties that 1) have existing track lighting, and 2) can self-install rebated lighting within one week of purchase.

Businesses interested in participating can learn more, see program rules and sign up by visiting http://tinyurl.com/springsierrasale or by contacting Karen Ritland at 530-582- 4800, e-mail kritland@sierrabusiness.org. There are a limited number of appointment slots available and they will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
