Give your Electricity Bill the Gift of Savings - Toronto Hydro launches Fifth Annual Festive Light Exchange



    TORONTO, Oct. 24 /CNW/ - Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited (Toronto
Hydro) in partnership with the City of Toronto and Toronto Association of
Business Improvement Areas (TABIA) is pleased to announce the return of the
season's most popular conservation program: Festive Light Exchange.
    To kick off the spirit of giving, the utility is offering Toronto
residents one (1) free string of energy-efficient LED seasonal lights in
exchange for two (2) strings of incandescent seasonal lights.
    Last year, thousands of Torontonians showed their holiday spirit by
lighting up the season with energy-efficient bulbs and knocking 2 Megawatts
from Toronto's power grid. Conservation saves money, electricity and the
environment.

    Events will be held in neighbourhoods across the city. Visit us at a
community event near you:
