Bulletin Staff Report

Oncor Electric Delivery chose Brownwood as the first city in its systemwide “Take A Load Off, Texas” energy-efficiency tour, and Brownwood responded with a large crowd Saturday.

“It’s been a good morning,” Paul Bennett, Oncor area manager, said as the two-hour demonstration wound down in front of Weakley-Watson True Value Hardware. “This has been a good turnout.”

Oncor officials and participating vendors provided demonstrations of energy-efficient products that are designed to help electricity users reduce consumption, regardless of their retail provider, and took home a sample kit with fluorescent bulbs and other materials.
