Tucson Electric Power (TEP) began recognizing customers with BrightEE awards (now known as TEP Go Green Awards) five years ago to promote awareness of its energy efficiency programs, which help customers save energy while producing substantial environmental benefits. Join me to learn how TEP and the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona have partnered for many years to teach girls how to save energy by upgrading to efficient LED lighting. Ready for this little teaser? During their annual cookie sales, how many LED lightbulbs did the Girl Scouts give out to the community? We will also find out what there is to know about a new energy efficient building, Angel Charity Place for Girls, which promotes health and wellness, art, entrepreneurship, and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) for girls. I am always excited to hear about and learn about the power and impact of Girls Scouts and the Southern Arizona girl scouts are rocking our corner of the world. This show made possible due to the generous support of Tucson Electric Power.
