CFL Giveaway

Almost forgot about the blog today. I had an interview this morning and the blog just slipped my mind.

Annnnyway. This afternoon I happened to be at the Exxon at McLean and Poplar — $3.24, I think, if you're interested — and there was a nice woman giving out energy saver kits from MLGW and the TVA that included a CFL bulb and an outlet insulating gasket (if you got a kit, it's the thing that looks like a piece of styrofoam).

I guess MLGW employees are out at 38 Exxon On the Run stations today giving out the energy saver kits.

From MLGW's Bird on a Wire blog:

"With TVA’s recent electric rate increase, it is becoming even more important for all of us to practice energy conservation in our homes,” said MLGW President and CEO Jerry Collins Jr. “There are a lot of little things that we can do each day that together add up to big savings. We want to encourage our customers how to think about energy conservation.”

At any rate, it's a free CFL, and you can't go wrong with that.
