A Chula Vista family has a new energy efficient washer and dryer all thanks to their efforts to cut back on energy use.
The Joe and Rosa Zander won the ‘Play Your Part’ sweepstakes, a countywide initiative urging people to save energy by committing to a plan.
“Exciting, happy. We’re saving on water. We’re saving on gas,” Rosa Zander said.
The contest was put on by NBC 7 and Energy Upgrade, a state initiative to help Californians conserve natural resources.
Most utilities in California are now offering rebates to people who buy energy efficient appliances as a way to encourage people to reduce use.
