Is it time for an energy-efficient upgrade? Vernon Electric Cooperative has teamed up with four other electric cooperatives in Minnesota and Wisconsin to create Electric$ense – an online store that will deliver energy-efficient light bulbs and water-saving products right to your door.
Electric$ense was designed with member convenience in mind. The online store offers products that are eligible for Vernon Electric’s incentive program. In addition to free shipping on all orders over $25, the prices listed on Electric$ense are discounted to automatically reflect available incentives. This will save both the member and Cooperative time by not having to fill out and process separate incentive forms.
“One of the worst feelings I have in a day is when a member submits an incentive form and required paperwork, but the product they purchased doesn’t qualify,” said Dave Maxwell, Vernon Electric’s Director of Marketing & Communications. “The Electric$ense store gives members peace-of-mind that any of the products they purchase are eligible for our incentives, which they receive immediately in the form of a discounted price.”
Lighting options on the site range from the traditional LED “bulb” shape to globe lamps, flood lamps, dimmable lamps and even T8 replacement lamps. Two different retrofit kits are also available to replace outdated fluorescent lighting systems. Water-saving products include multiple options for low-flow showerheads and faucets.
Members can browse the Electric$ense store at https://electricsense.amcgmarketplace.com. To purchase a product, a member must create an account and identify as a Vernon Electric Co-op member; the store accepts VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal.
