Veridian's Sign Up & Save Summer Tour kicks off in Ajax-Pickering this weekend

    AJAX, ON, June 4 /CNW/ - Veridian Connections Sign Up & Save Summer Tour
will kick off its second annual tour with visits to Ajax and Pickering this
weekend. The tour team will make stops at the Pickering Village Jazz Festival
and the Pickering Rotary Ribfest with valuable information on conservation
initiatives. The Sign Up & Save Summer Tour team will be on the road for the
next ten weeks at festivals and events in communities served by Veridian.
    Don't miss your chance to visit the Veridian booth and learn how you can
save both energy and money by participating in Veridian's conservation
programs. You can enter to win great weekly prizes, including a grand prize
valued at $800. And, the first 100 participants to the booth each day will
receive a free energy savings give-away - so don't wait to Sign Up & Save!
    "We are really excited to be the one of the first stops on Veridian's
Sign up and Save Summer Tour," said Mayor Dave Ryan of Pickering. "This is a
great opportunity for Ajax and Pickering residents to learn more about
Veridian's conservation programs and the simple actions they can take to
reduce energy use; actions that will save on home energy costs and help reduce
environmental impacts at the same time."
    "The Sign up and Save Summer Tour will make it easy for Veridian
customers to take part in a variety of our conservation initiatives such as
peaksaver(R), The Great Refrigerator Roundup, and Veridian's e-billing
services," explained George Armstrong, Manager of Regulatory Affairs and Key
projects for Veridian. "It is important for us to be providing responsible
energy conservation choices to our customers and we are eager to connect with
them during this summer tour."

and Saturday June 6th on Highway No.2 in historic Pickering Village in the
