GREEN MOUNTAIN POWER'S LIGHTING PROGRAM SAVES MONEY AND ELECTRICITY

 GREEN MOUNTAIN POWER'S LIGHTING PROGRAM SAVES MONEY AND ELECTRICITY
 SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Mountain Power (NYSE: GMP) has launched a new residential energy-saving program that will reduce the amount of electricity required for household lighting. GMP customers are receiving information about the program in bills this month.
 Called "Power$avers Homelights Program," the conservation project offers GMP residential customers a subsidy, ranging from $4.50 to $20 to purchase energy efficient light bulbs and fixtures through mail order. Bulb prices range from $3 to $8, while fixture costs range from $20 to $40.
 GMP estimates that this mail order program will save more than 6,500 megawatthours a year after the five-year implementation period. These savings represent enough electricity to power 800 homes, or two months generation from GMP's Essex Plant 19 hydroelectric plant.
 "This progam offers our residential customers a chance to reduce their lighting bills substantially," said Mike Weedall, director of energy management services. "With our subsidy, which is about 50 percent of the cost, the payback for these state-of-the-art light bulbs and fixtures will be greatly shortened. A customer replacing a 75-watt incandescent bulb that is used two hours a day with an 18-watt energy efficient bulb will save about $40 over the life of the bulb."
 The program is being offered as a mail-order purchase arrangement with The Energy Federation, Inc. (EFI). GMP customers will order directly from EFI at reduced prices. A customer who wants to order a $40 porch light fixture, for instance, will send EFI $20 and GMP will pay $20.
 The residential lighting program is part of GMP's comprehensive energy conservation program approved in the fall of 1991 by the Vermont Public Service Board. When all the conservation programs are fully implemented, GMP has projected the total energy reduction to 75,000 megawatthours a year and a demand reduction of 14.3 megawatts in peak generating capacity through all its conservation programs.
