Thanks for playing, and watch around this time next month for our next energy efficiency trivia question!
Ready to take your shot at winning a $50 Amazon gift card? You’ll have a chance if you correctly answer today’s energy efficiency trivia question. It’s the first in a series of questions we plan to post this summer and fall.
The full official rules are here, but here’s the short version:
- Each question will be posted here on our Stories blog at 8 a.m. on contest day. (We’ll promote them on social media beforehand — particularly on Twitter and Facebook — so be sure you’re following us.)
- You’ll have until 8 p.m. that same day to post your answer in the Comments section of the blog post. Answers posted on any other social media platform, or posted after 8 p.m. on contest day, will not be eligible to win. Be aware that it may take a few minutes for your comment to show up on the blog — no need to enter it multiple times.
- One correct response will be chosen at random, and the winner will receive a $50 Amazon gift card. Make sure to leave a valid email address as part of your comment, so we can reach you if you win — if we can’t reach you, we’ll have to choose another winner.
Also, we reserve the right to hide or delete comments not related to the contest. If you need help with a customer service issue, the best way to handle it is to call us at 1-800-DIAL-PPL (that’s 800-342-5775.)
