Vancouver, WA – Clark County has scheduled another free workshop showcasing creative uses of LED lighting, including how it can lower electricity bills.

The workshop, sponsored by the Clark County Green Business Program, is set for 3:30-5 p.m. Thursday, July 17, at the Heathman Lodge, 7801 N.E. Greenwood Drive.

At a March 19 workshop, more than 30 participants received information on the recent price reduction for LED lighting. The July 17 event will highlight financial incentives, such as from Clark Public Utilities, to help property owners, managers and tenants pay for LED upgrades. It also will showcase how LED can best be used as outdoor lighting.

Light-emitting diode, or LED, lights have several advantages over traditional incandescent bulbs. They use far less electricity, last much longer, are more difficult to break and produce relatively little heat. Until recently, however, consumers had to pay more for LED lights.

“LED lighting is more affordable than it ever has been before,” said Don Benton, Environmental Services director. “It can more than pay for itself through lower energy costs. We want to get the word out to businesses and other community members. Not only will their pocketbooks benefit, but so will our environment.”

While rebates and incentives are available only for commercial properties, all community members are welcome at the July 17 workshop. Participants can join industry specialists for an informal question and answer session. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Registration is required. Please register at the Clark County Green Business Program website, www.clarkgreenbiz.com.
