Zeeland BPW Boosts Holiday Cheer with Power Dollars

Zeeland, Michigan – Zeeland Board of Public Works (BPW) announces the return of its annual Holiday Power Dollars Program.  The tradition that began over 30 years ago incentivizes residential electric customers to decorate the exterior of their homes for the holidays. 

Starting on November 23rd, $15 in Holiday Power Dollars can be claimed online by all of our electric customers. “The Holiday Power Dollars Program is quite unique,” shared Andrew Boatright, Zeeland BPW’s General Manager. “In short, the program provides extra holiday cheer,” Boatright continued.

“Holiday Power Dollars can be used at participating businesses in Zeeland,” said Kate Chrisman, the Accounting and Finance Manager at Zeeland BPW. “I can’t think of a better way to support our area during the Holidays. Power Dollars encourages folks to decorate and gives our local businesses a boost.”

Residential electric customers can receive their Holiday Power Dollars by completing the online form. Digital Holiday Power Dollars can either be printed or saved to a smartphone. Participating merchants will scan the QR code to redeem the certificate and will receive 100% of the certificate’s value. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Boatright adds, “What started as a way to offset the cost of lighting yard cards, a long-standing Zeeland tradition, has turned into so much more and brought so much joy to this town we love.” 

As an added bonus this year, the BPW is holding a home decorating contest on Facebook as well. Homeowners can submit a photo of their outdoor decorations for a chance to win additional Holiday Power Dollar certificates (rules and regulations apply, see website for more details).

Power Dollars are available from Nov. 23 through Dec.10 and can be spent through Jan. 31, 2024. Visit zeelandbpw.com/powerdollars for more information.
