Woman wins Monster in the Basement contest

A spooky walk into a basement, where an old refrigerator lurks, won City Light’s Monsters in the Basement video contest.

Julia Rader Detering won for her video, “The Blair Light Project.”

City Light sponsored the contest to highlight the inefficiency of old refrigerators, which use three to four times as much electricity as new models.

City Light teamed with JACO Environmental to pick up old fridges and freezers for free, providing a $30 rebate.

“Congratulations to Julia for her creative use of video to help others learn about the hidden costs of the energy monsters lurking in our basements and garages and how to get rid of them,” said City Light superintendent Jorge Carrasco, in a news release.

Detering won a $500 gift card and an iPod shuffle.

To get rid of an unwanted refrigerator or freezer, call JACO at 1-877-577-0510  or schedule a pickup.

Here’s a link to Detering’s video and the other entries.
