Vectren Launches Home Energy Efficiency Makeover Contest To Boost Online Energy Audits

With post-holiday winter heating bills about to face Indiana residents, Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren) launched today a new Home Energy Efficiency Makeover Contest to encourage more Indiana customers to participate in online energy audits in an effort to pinpoint opportunities to reduce energy consumption and lower bills.

In early March, one Vectren customer will win the Home Energy Efficiency Makeover Contest and receive up to $8,000 in free home improvements and upgrades to reduce the customer’s energy consumption. The winner’s home will receive a complete on-site audit the results of which will determine the needs for the makeover. Among the benefits the winner can receive are high-efficiency appliances and weatherization services such as a natural gas furnace, natural gas water heater, programmable thermostat, ENERGY STAR® clothes washer, natural gas clothes dryer, compact fluorescent light bulbs, new caulk and/or weather stripping and added insulation.

Vectren natural gas customers can easily participate in the contest by completing an online Energy Audit at now through March 1, 2008. Through an online audit, all customers gain the benefits of determining home energy use, how to reduce gas energy consumption and, more importantly, how to save money with energy conservation.

To boost customer awareness and participation, Vectren will visit community events throughout its Indiana service area in the month of February with a ?wrapped? Conservation Connection vehicle to promote the contest and distribute information. Specific event locations will be announced soon.

?We view this contest as a way to engage more of our customers in evaluating their home energy use and discovering ways to save through a user-friendly tool like Vectren’s online audit,? said Doug Karl, Vectren’s vice president of marketing and customer service.

Eligible contest participants must be Indiana residential natural gas customers of Vectren Energy Delivery of Indiana and use natural gas as their primary home heating source. Also, participants/homeowners must be at least 18 years old and have an active Vectren Energy Delivery account in good financial standing. The primary account holder must reside at the service address on the account to be eligible to win.

More information about Vectren’s Home Energy Efficiency Makeover Contest and the Energy Audit tool is available at or by calling 866.240.8476. Those households without online access can complete an energy audit over the phone by calling Vectren’s Conservation Connection contact center at 866.240.8476.
