64- CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, January 5 - Monday, January 8, 2007 Energy Answers Program donated to state libraries Public libraries across the state were awarded checks totaling $14,268 in recognition of their partnership with DNREC's Delaware Energy Office to dis- tribute energy-saving light bulbs to residential electric customers in the Flip the Switch, Delaware - and Save! campaign. The cam- paign kicked off the Delaware Energy AnSwers Program, the state's new energy efficiency ini- tiative, made possible by Gov. Ruth Ann Minner and the Delaware General Assembly. "In October Delaware's 34 public libraries distributed 142,680 compact fluorescent bulbs to residential electric cus- tomers," said Sandra Burton, energy efficiency coordinator with the Delaware Energy Office." On behalf of the Delaware Energy Office, I want to thank the libraries for their tremendous help. As part of the program, libraries receive 10 cents for each light bulb distrib- .uted,. and it is my pleasure to award a check to each library. In all, $14,268 is presented to Delaware libraries .for their par- ticipation in this program." The free fluorescent bulbs were provided by the Delaware Energy AnSwers Program to help Delawareans reduce their electric bills and conserve energy. The bulbs, nearly a $10 retail value, use less electricity than a standard incandescent bulb. When used to replace a 60-watt standard bulb, the 142,680 fluorescent bulbs dis- tribtited will save- Delawareans a total of nearly $1.04 million per year. Annie Norman, director of the Delaware Division of Libraries, thanked the Delaware Energy Office for the opportunity to par- ticipate in the program. "It was a pleasure to work with the Delaware Energy Office, and we appreciate the funds which will help offset the costs of dis- tributing the bulbs.

The Delaware Energy AnSwers Program is funded by the Energy Efficiency Financial Incentives Act of 2006, which appropriates $8 million for energy efficiency projects. The program consists of three areas. The Energy AnSwers for Home Appliances provides cash incentives to citizens who retire inefficient appliances and replace them with-Energy Star appliances and other high effi- ciency prodts. .
