Vectren Provides Energy-Efficient Lighting To Area Food Pantries For Distribution


Vectren, a CenterPoint Energy company, provided sixteen food pantries throughout Evansville, Chandler, Boonville, Newburgh, Mt. Vernon and New Harmony with 4-packs of LED bulbs to distribute to patrons throughout the summer. Through its energy efficiency program, Vectren is providing more than 50,000 bulbs to be given to those in the community who frequent the area’s various food pantries.

“By providing LED bulbs to the food pantries, we are helping low-income families take simple, effective steps to lowering their energy costs,” said Lynnae Wilson, chief business officer, Indiana electric. “Vectren is committed to assisting customers to conserve energy and save money.”

If all bulbs are installed replacing traditional 60-watt light bulbs assuming three hrs/day of use, nearly 232,000 kWhs of energy consumption will be saved annually – enough to power 2,780 homes for a month or 215 homes annually.

Vectren offers instant discounts on LED bulbs at area retailers such as Home Depot, Wal-Mart and Batteries + Bulbs. Visit for a list of all stores. Learn more about Vectren’s energy efficiency programs at or call 1-866-240-8476.
