The heat of summer has arrived, bringing with it the sound and cool air of air conditioners. And, the high electric bills that accompany them. In the summer during the hottest weather, our electric bill easily hits $175. This is one of the few times I’m grateful that our small ranch home is well, small. I shudder to think about how much the bill would be if we had the big house I’ve dreamed of all my life. Energizer has established the Energizer Utility Cash program as a way of trying to help the community. Here’s some more info on this program.
For decades Energizer has supported organizations helping to make a positive impact in local communities and around the world. This spring as part of the Energizer campaign—that’s positivenergy—they’re “building” on that commitment in a new way through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity®. Working with baseball legend and philanthropist Cal Ripken, Jr., Energizer is donating more than $300,000 and 1,000 volunteer hours to Habitat through a multi-city series of volunteer projects to help build new homes and revitalize existing homes for those in need.
Here’s where you can get involved. With the rising cost of utilities, we can all use a little bit of help right? Especially if we have a really hot summer! So, beyond helping Habitat, Energizer is doing something to help us all out. In addition to the series of volunteer projects, you will see the Energizer and Habitat for Humanity partnership coming to the shelves of your favorite stores. Through the Energizer Utility Cash program, you can collect codes from select Energizer battery and lighting products and redeem them online for savings, up to $25 total savings each per person/household/email address, off your own utility bill. You start earning rewards with just two codes and will need 10 codes total to earn the full $25. Or you can help make a positive impact and choose to turn the codes into a donation to Habitat for Humanity®.
Check the site for the full rules, but basically there are two big things you should know.
- You must enter your codes all at once. That means, as you collectyour codes, stash them somewhere safe. When you’ve got enough, visit www.nowthatspositivenergy.com/utilities to enter your codes.
- The last day to redeem codes is 3/31/13 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
ONE winner will receive two specially marked packages Energizer Max AA batteries with special codes.
