MLGW Wants You on YouTube


Memphis, Light, Gas and Water recently announced that utility prices would rise by 30 percent. Now the utility is encouraging customers to cut back on energy use by "greening" their homes and then videotaping the evidence.

Between now and August 31st, MLGW is asking its customers to upload videos about their energy-saving ways on The videos will be judged by MLGW staff and media representatives, and the top three winners will be awarded $250 Home Depot gift cards.

"We want to give our customers a chance to show us innovative ways that they conserve energy at home everyday. We want to see original and creative home videos that demonstrate procedures that you and your family have in order to keep your utility bill low as possible," said MLGW's Chris Stanley.
