LPEA to host “Lunch & Lights” workshops in Durango and Pagosa Springs
Free informational series to further energy efficient lighting education
DURANGO, Colo. – Continuing its Free Information Series designed to help co-op
members understand the new lighting technology and save energy, La Plata Electric Association
(LPEA) will host two “Lunch & Lights” workshops in February 2015. All those interested in
learning more about LED (light-emitting diode) lamps and more, are invited to attend.
Both workshops are set for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and lunch will be served. On Thursday, Feb.
12, “Lunch & Lights” will be held at LPEA’s Durango headquarters – the multi-purpose room, 45
Stewart St. (Bodo Park). On Tuesday, Feb. 17 the workshop is scheduled for Ruby M. Sisson
Memorial Library, 811 San Juan St., Pagosa Springs.
“Lighting technology is changing at a rapid clip and we’re continually fielding questions
from our members,” said Ray Pierotti, project specialist who oversees lighting programs for
LPEA. “At the workshops we will share the latest information about the basics of light bulbs –
especially LEDs. I hope to answer a lot of questions, including how to identify the appropriate
LED bulb for each application.”
As Pierotti notes, though the price for LEDs is dropping, the cost still remains higher than
other lighting sources, so it pays for LPEA’s members to do their homework before purchasing.
LPEA also offers a variety of lighting rebates for both residents and businesses, which helps
mitigate the cost of changing out bulbs, and those options will be reviewed.
Because lunch will be served, those interested in attending are asked to RSVP to Pierotti,
[email protected] or 970.382.7770.
