United Water officials announced the launch of a sweepstakes campaign designed to encourage enrollment in its award-winning paperless eBilling program that will offer a grand prize of $2,500 and four daily prizes of $50 during the next 12 weeks. The “Go Green. Win Green.” program is open to residents and businesses in United Water’s service territory who visit the company’s website at www.unitedwater.com/ebillingprize. In order to play, participants must match a “decoder” in their bill to reveal a “win” or “no win” message found on the website.
Customers will have the opportunity to sign up for paperless eBilling when they register on the website. Approximately 50,000 customers nationally have already signed up for United Water’s eBilling program. The enrollment rate of 8 percent surpasses the three-year industry average of 5 percent. The National Association of Water Companies presented United Water with an Innovation Award in recognition of this program’s success.
“This campaign highlights paperless billing as one of the many convenient options available to our customers,” said Lynne Allaker, vice president of corporate customer service at United Water. “Customers who enroll in the program will have their paper bill replaced with an exact electronic replica delivered by email. By choosing to go paperless, customers can help save trees, reduce water usage and cut down on greenhouse gases.”
There is no purchase necessary to enter United Water’s sweepstakes which is open to legal residents, 18 years of age and older, who live in participating service territories.
