The "Biggest Overall Loser" will receive $599 toward an Energy Star Qualified dishwasher, refrigerator or washing machine of choice and $100 toward a solar site assessment from Eastern Mountain Solar. The "Biggest Loser" in a one month period during the competition gets a free Comfort Club Membership from TAG Mechanical (approximate cash value $250) as well as an Energy Efficiency & Green Products Kit from National Grid.

All participants will receive 10 percent off coupons for energy saving products from Buyea's Hardware when they provide their utility information on time each month from January to June of 2011.

This program has been developed in partnership with Samuel Gordon, NYSERDA Energy $mart Communities coordinator for the CNY Regional Planning & Development Board. The "Challenge" is sponsored by CACDA, CNYRPDB, NYSERDA Energy $mart Communities and Buyea's True Value Hardware.
