There's a little extra bonus for Provincetown residents who attend the annual town meeting on April 7: some savings on their electric bill. Provincetown residents who attend the second night of the town meeting at the Provincetown Town Hall may trade in up to 5 incandescent bulbs for energy saving LED bulbs.
The Provincetown annual town meeting and special town meeting---a two-night affair--will be held on Monday, April 6 and Tuesday, April 7. The light bulb swap will take place on the second night, April 7.
The Cape Light Compact will have table set up at the entrance to the Town Hall before the 6 p.m. start of the meeting Tuesday night. Turned in bulbs must be in working order and will be recycled by the Cape Light Compact.
According to the Mass Save website, 20% of your electricity bill is lighting. Replacing an incandescent light bulb with a CFL bulb or an LED bulb (such as the bulbs to be distributed in Provincetown) can save $10 annually, according to Mass Save.
