Sweepstakes Offers free Month of Electricity for Trying Energy-Saving web app

Share Article

Each week a lucky MyEmissionsExchange.com user won't have to pay their electric bill -- and everyone who saves enough energy around the home or office will get money in their PayPal account. The average household can save $400 a year on its utility bills, and earn an additional $70 by selling the resulting Personal Carbon Credits through MyEmissionsExchange. The sweepstakes that starts this week marks an upgrade that makes using the site easier than ever.

MyEmissionsExchange Pays Your Electric Bill Sweepstakes.

MyEmissionsExchange.com, the website that pays users money for reducing their monthly utility bills -- and helps stop global warming -- announced today the start of its "MyEmissionsExchange Pays Your Electric Bill Sweepstakes."

One lucky user a week of the My Emissions Exchange web app will be selected as a winner through a series of drawings, the first of which will take place at 5 pm Eastern time next Monday, Oct. 5, 2009.

Paul Herrgesell, Project Manager, said the "MyEmissionsExchange Pays Your Electric Bill Sweepstakes" celebrates a new upgrade that makes the free service easier to use, and compatible with even more utilities in the U.S. and internationally.

To become eligible for the sweepstakes, existing members simply need to update their profiles, while new members can upload the baseline data that appears on any monthly utility bill. Once a member has become eligible, he or she will remain eligible throughout the entire sweepstakes. A new winner will be chosen each week from now through Thanksgiving. Winners will be reimbursed for one month's worth of electricity.

On MyEmissionsExchange.com, individual households and businesses for the first time can "earn green for going green" by demonstrating that they have reduced their electric, natural gas, propane, or fuel oil bill versus the same month a year ago (after correcting for variations in the weather).

Web users only need to input one recent utility bill to get started (since most utility bills display a year's worth of billing history). As users reduce their energy usage, the reductions are verified with the utility by MyEmissionsExchange and certified as "Personal Carbon Credits." These credits are then sold on the voluntary market to large companies looking to demonstrate their environmental commitment. Profits are deposited directly into MyEmissionsExchange.com users' PayPal accounts, for the users to spend any way they like.

The site offers coaching, too, suggesting a variety of no-hassle ways to immediately cut at least 10 percent off your utility bills. Essentially, users get paid twice: The average household can save $400 a year on its utility bills, and earn an additional $70 by selling the resulting Personal Carbon Credits through MyEmissionsExchange.

MyEmissionsExchange.com is a simple tool that empowers individuals to make a real, measurable contribution towards fighting global warming, and put more money in their pockets at the same time.

"We know our members work hard to reduce their energy bills," said Tom Reilly, Campaign Manager of MyEmissionsExchange. "This is our chance to lessen the load on our users by giving them a chance at having no electric bill for a month."

The last drawing will take place on November 23, 2009. See MyEmissionsExchange.com for rules and regulations.


MyEmissionsExchange.com is a new website that pays members cash rewards for reducing their monthly utility bills. The site shows users simple ways to cut out wasted energy at home, earn money, and help stop global warming. Savings measured on utility bills earn members valuable "Personal Carbon Credits"; member profits are deposited directly into their PayPal accounts. Join people like you who are finding out how rewarding it is to "earn green for going green" at MyEmissionsExchange.com.
