HOLLAND, Michigan – On Saturday, June 6, city of Holland residents could hear a knock on their door from an enthusiastic energy ambassador. More than 100 volunteers will disperse throughout the neighborhoods in Holland for two reasons – to educate residents about ways to reduce their energy consumption, and to give away items that will help them do just that.
Every person who answers their door will receive a Cree LED (light-emitting diode) bulb valued at ten dollars. Other giveaways include free home energy audits by Dr. Energy Saver, worth $425, and a chance to win one of 125 NEST Smart Thermostats, valued at $250.
City Manager, Ryan Cotton, and Holland BPW General Manager, Dave Koster are recruiting city staffers, city council members, spouses, and community members to form what will be the biggest door-to-door energy conservation campaign the city has known.
