Cape Light Compact will mail a letter and a survey at random to households across Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard during the coming weeks in June and early July, seeking information about home energy use.
Households that complete the survey and reply by Wednesday, July 9, will have an opportunity to win one of 10 American Express Gift Cards or the grand prize of $1,000 in energy efficiency appliances. Winners will be randomly chosen from completed surveys received by July 9.
The survey asks residents to provide information on their home appliances, heating system, air conditioning, lighting and other features that could influence energy consumption; survey completion should take only 10 or 15 minutes. Responders can reply using the written survey, or electronically, using a link mentioned in the letter. All responses to the survey will be kept strictly confidential.
