Energy efficiency during these hot summer months just got a bit easier today with the launch of Southern California Edison (SCE)’s Summer Savings Giveaway sweepstakes on its Facebook page, which offers customers a chance to win hundreds of dollars in gift cards from Home Depot, Lowe’s and Sears.

The utility’s hope is that the winners will use the gift cards towards buying energy efficient ENERGY STAR-rated appliances from the participating retailers. The sweepstakes is also a way for customers to discover SCE’s Facebook page, where there are tips on keeping cool, saving energy and saving on summer electric bills.

“We’re really happy to team up with Home Depot, Lowe’s and Sears, because it reminds us that in order to make a difference, it takes a group commitment,” said SCE Customer Service Senior Vice President Erwin Furukawa.

“Retailers and manufacturers are consistently innovating ways to create and sell products that help people save energy. Utilities like us are always trying to find ways to engage customers with the right incentives and programs. Every single one of us can take actions that help to save energy.”

The sweepstakes runs today through Aug. 18 on SCE’s Facebook page. Each week for the first three weeks, SCE will give away one $250 card to each of the three stores, one winner for each store. The fourth and final week, one winner will score the grand prize of all three $250 cards. Customers may enter once each day during the run of the giveaway for more chances to win.

The sweepstakes is only open to SCE customers, but anyone can come to the Facebook page for great information all summer long.
