Lowe's launches energy centers in 21 stores

Mooresville, N.C. Lowe's is launching “Energy Centers” in 21 California stores. The Energy Center is a one-stop destination aimed to empower customers to create an energy plan that fits their budget and home-improvement goals.

The Energy Center outlines three ways for customers to save energy and money: Measure how much energy they use or lose with power monitors and other devices; reduce energy consumption with CFLs and other money-saving products; and generate and use renewable energy with solar panels.

An informational kiosk offers a touch-screen display to help customers evaluate energy needs, and the Energy Center features products that offer alternative energy solutions.
