St. Louis, MO, March 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Laclede Gas, the Original Green Energy, is encouraging customers in its service area to go green by enrolling in its e-bill service by April 30, 2010 to automatically be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a cash prize and a donation to the “green” charity of their choice.
In May, two account holders will be randomly selected from the e-bill subscriber list. The first account holder selected will win $1,000 cash, and Laclede will make a $100 donation to his/her favorite “green” charity. The second account holder selected will win $100 cash, and Laclede will make a $50 donation to his/her “green” charity of choice. Details and official rules are available at OriginalGreenEnergy.com.
E-bill is one of the easiest ways to go green and reduce your carbon footprint. Not only does it allow you to receive and pay your monthly gas bill electronically, it reduces the number of paper bills Laclede must print and mail. Each year, the amount of paper Laclede uses in its monthly billing process is the environmental equivalent of powering an average American household for 26 days, or nine trees that supply enough oxygen for five people for one year.
Customers opting out of receiving paper gas bills will help reduce the amount or paper Laclede uses in its monthly billing process as well as assist in Laclede’s overall goal of making St. Louis a more energy efficient city.
As an added benefit to customers, e-bill is a faster, easier and more convenient way for customers to receive and pay their gas bill. For more information please visit OriginalGreenEnergy.com.
“Laclede held a similar campaign last summer and the daily number of customers opting out of receiving a paper billing statement in favor of the 'green' alternative tripled during the campaign.” - Justin Gioia, director of corporate communications for Laclede Gas
