WECC Awarded Contract with Spencer Municipal Utilities

WECC is excited to serve as the new implementer of Spencer Municipal Utilities' Iowa Be Bright residential lighting program. Launched on July 1, Iowa Be Bright provides instant rebates toward the purchase of a variety of high-efficiency ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs at select retail stores throughout Clay County.

Spencer Municipal Utilities is the community-owned provider of electric power, water, and telecommunications to Spencer, Iowa. The utility, founded in 1942, serves more than 6,000 customers throughout the greater City of Spencer.
WECC currently implements the Iowa Be Bright program in a number of other markets across the state. In 2015, point-of-purchase advertising, educational materials, and promotional events helped drive customers of participating utilities to purchase more than 2 million CFLs and nearly 565,000 LED bulbs—totaling 100,000 megawatt-hours in energy savings.
