After receiving thousands of entries through home shows across the country and online, Rod from Paeroa, has been drawn as the lucky winner of the 2016 Switch On and Win promotion.
Rod had always dreamt of upgrading his home electrical. “In 2006 we purchased a 2-storied, 6-bedroom home built in 1979 on a hill overlooking Paeroa town and country. The electric switches and hot points virtually capture a 47 year history of design improvements”.
10 years after the home was purchased, PDL by Schneider Electric are helping to make Rod’s dreams come true with a $6,000 dollar prize. The ‘Switch on and Win’ prize includes $5000 worth of new switches and sockets for his home, plus $1000 towards installation.
Given this was part of a long-term vision, Rod had already done some work on the electrical infrastructure of the home.
“My forward planning included upgrading the electrical supply to all rooms. I had actually started this project by doing a detailed inventory by room of current resources but needed to view a comprehensive product range, make some decisions and then obtain quotes” said Rod.
Having worked in manufacturing units across Auckland, Shanghai, Johor Bahru and Sydney, Rod has a passion for history and culture. This combined with a deep appreciation for sophisticated design, meant that Rod was looking to update the finishing touches of his home in a way which was still in keeping with the overall look and feel.
Now, thanks to winning the competition, Rod is able to select a range of switches from elegant glass, contemporary styles, those featuring European curves and more. In addition, his home electrical can now have added functions like convenient USB charging, pop-up power points and energy efficient options like timer switches and light dimmers.
“Winning the ‘Switch on and Win’ competition was a fantastic surprise and the timing is superb! I am very grateful for this prize” said Rod.
PDL by Schneider Electric would like to thank everyone who entered the competition. Watch this space for more exciting offers.
