Philips CFL (Low Energy Bulbs) - GreenBriland NOW!

Every Watt Counts!
Briland Goes Green

[Dunmore Town, Harbour Island - 1 November 2008] -- Who says that a group of
concerned citizens can't help City Hall? Harbour Island District Council,
Philips Electronics, EnergyBahamas and the Bahamas Ministry of Environment
are pleased to announce a one-time program during which all businesses
(hotels, restaurants, cafés and other commercial enterprises), homeowners
and residences on Harbour Island can replace their traditional light bulbs
with energy-saving, longer-lasting CFL bulbs, as explained in the attached
brochure. Philips is generously offering an especially low rate to Bahamas
Electricity Corporation, which in turn is purchasing the bulbs on behalf of
its customer base.

"For every 1,000 such bulbs that Brilanders are able to quickly replace,
they can offset 1MW of the energy needed by Bahamas Electricity Corporation
to power its beautiful island," notes Minister Earl Deveaux, Minister of
Environment, "and as we have seen over the past several months ... every
watt counts!"

The Philips/Briland Bulb price list for the various bulbs available is
attached, as is an overview of Philips' energy-saving bulbs which will help
consumers save on their monthly utility bills, while easing the power load
on BEC's local generation plant.

Comparison chart:

To make your order, please review the attached bulb shopping list, make your
selection, and e-mail, being certain to list your
name, business/residence address and contact information. Offer good
through 31 December 2009, and yes ... we have active plans to make this
program available to Bahamians around the country shortly.
