Power Smart Month is back, with a big prize and big savings for you

Create your Power Plan and enter to win a custom $10,000 ENERGY STARĀ® prize package

October is the season of savings, thanks to Power Smart and our retail partners. This year, we've got a new set of ways for you to save on everything from energy-efficient lighting to appliances, tips to get you saving, and a brand new contest with an amazing prize, courtesy of Samsung.

We don't have to do a lot to save money on power. That's the idea behind the Power Plan, a new tool available on powersmart.ca. With just a few simple actions, you can find Power Smart savings throughout your home. The Power Plan shows you just how much you can save on your bill with each Power Smart action.

Plus, once you create your plan, you can enter to win a $10,000 ENERGY STAR prize package, courtesy of Samsung. You'll even be able to choose which ENERGY STAR products you want in your package. See the full contest details [PDF, 110 KB].
