Eversource, borough hosting light bulb swap


NAUGATUCK — Naugatuck residents can exchange their incandescent light bulbs for new, energy-efficient LED bulbs on Saturday.

Eversource and Naugatuck are hosting a free light bulb swap for residents from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Naugatuck Senior Center, 300 Meadow St. Naugatuck residents, with identification, can bring up to five incandescent light bulbs in any condition and exchange them for new, energy-efficient LED bulbs, free of charge while supplies last.

Additional LEDs and lighting products will be available for purchase at a discounted rate. Energy experts from Eversource will also be on-hand to answer questions and provide people with information on how they can save money and energy at home.

In 2015, Naugatuck joined Clean Energy Communities, the nationally-recognized Energize Connecticut program to help cities and towns save energy and increase the installation of renewable energy. Eversource is currently working with Naugatuck to help it reach its energy goals and reduce municipal building energy consumption by 20 percent by 2018.
