Come visit the national ENERGY STAR Change a Light Bus at an energy education event being hosted by MidAmerican Energy Company and Hy-Vee at Des Moines' Western Gateway Park. Walk through the bus' interactive Education Center to see for yourself why choosing energy-efficient lighting and taking further steps to save energy is so important. Center visitors will also be invited to take the national Change a Light pledge. MidAmerican Energy will be running a bulb sale at the park for its customers, who will be able to purchase ENERGY STAR qualified light bulbs for as little as $0.99 after a $2 instant rebate. This sale will be an extension of an existing promotion they are running as a participant in the national ENERGY STAR Change a Light, Change the World campaign, which runs from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30 in the State of Iowa.
