PowerSmart Month: Week 3 – Grand Prize

Comments 46 by Rebecca Bollwitt

October is PowerSmart Month and I have partnered with BC Hydro over the last few weeks to bring you contests, rebate offers from local retailers, energy-saving tips, and event info. This week doesn’t have a theme like the others, however I do have a grand prize announcement.

PowerSmart Month

PowerSmart Deal of the Week
From October 15th until the 21st you can save up to $500 on an eco-friendly Samsung LCD at all Best Buy locations.

PowerSmart Tip of the Week
Being energy-efficient when it comes to lighting starts with turning off light switches when you’re not in the room or at home. You can take a few more eco-friendly steps by using compact fluorescent lights (or CFLs) which use 75% less energy than traditional light bulbs. LED lights are also hitting the market and they are available as individual bulbs or as full lighting fixtures. You can also purchase timers to make sure your outdoor or indoor lights turn off at a certain hour instead of remaining on throughout the day or night.

PowerSmart Events this Week
On October 17th there will be a special PowerSmart Month campaign at the North Vancouver London Drugs and Team PowerSmart will be at the West Coast Women’s Show in Abbotsford October 22nd until the 24th. The Candlelight Conservation Dinner is also taking place October 21st at dozens of local restaurants.

      I checked out the 3D tvs at a display during the Olympics, it was pretty trippy. The plus about having 3D at home: you don’t have to worry about sharing unsanitary glasses.

    23. SharaWednesday, October 20th, 2010 — 3:12pm PDT

      What a great package!! I joined Team Powersmart last year, aiming to reduce our consumption by 10%. I wasn’t expecting to have company for over 4 months when I made the pledge, but we still managed to reduce our usage by 8%!! I bet this new tv could help towards my current challenge!

    24. ValerieWednesday, October 20th, 2010 — 4:38pm PDT

      Count me in! Go Power Smart or go home..

    25. Chelsea WThursday, October 21st, 2010 — 3:48pm PDT

      Love that it’s 3D and energy efficient! My old TV must be a power guzzler.

    26. ChristinaThursday, October 21st, 2010 — 4:03pm PDT

      Awesome prize package, great way to promote Power Smart month!

    27. DonThursday, October 21st, 2010 — 5:34pm PDT

      Great prize. It would look great in my place!

      Would love this!!!!!! 🙂

    29. KathrynFriday, October 22nd, 2010 — 9:09am PDT

      Don’t forget! If you buy CFL, you need to be aware of the safe disposal methods that are available – otherwise, you do more damage to the environment. Be powersmart, then be disposal smart. Do some research!!

      Great contest Miss 604!

    45. I.A.M.Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010 — 9:36am PDT

      I’m flabbergasted at winning, and suspect that the new set-up will actually use less power than our current tube-based TV. So, a win no matter how you look at it!

      Profuse thanks to Miss 604, Best Buy, Samsung Canada, Geek Squad, and BC Hydro!

      […] or something along these lines. However, the results were far more than this. I am to receive the Grand Prize of a 46″, 3D-Ready, LED, Flat-Screen Television; a 3D-Capable, Blu-Ray Player featuring Full HD […]
