The irony of this does not escape me. Puget Sound Energy is doing a "Re-Energized by Design" challenge and we have a Kirkland resident that is a finalist! Making us proud! Rosalie Wessels is one of 20 and needs your vote before November 18th so she can be considered for the final selection interview. After that, six contestants will be chosen to participate in a room-by-room design challenge that will show you how you can bring energy efficiency to simple home projects.
I wish that Tom, the most energy-efficient Kirkland Blog reader on the planet, was in this contest too. I'll be he'd come up with some awesome ideas to win him the GE lightbulbs, Frigidaire appliances and $5k grand prize. I think Rosalie should call him in as her secret weapon. Just sayin'. Until, then let's rally for our Kirkland girl and get her some more votes. I just checked and she has 34 votes while the person in the lead has 169. Feel free to share your energy-saving tips for her here too . ~j
