Did you know the average home has 40 light bulb sockets? To help replace those inefficient, incandescent bulbs, DP&L is offering discounts on energy efficient complact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) and light emitting diodes (LEDs). The average CFL discount is $1.30 off each light bulb, so at 40 bulbs, your savings could add up to $52 now. And since each CFL can save you $30 in energy costs over its lifetime, that could add up to $1,200 in savings over the life of the bulb!
LEDs are up to 85% more efficient than traditional incandescent light bulbs and can last up to 25 years. Like CFLs, you can receive a discounted price at the register at participating retail outlets.
Switch all the bulbs in your home to energy-efficient CFLs, and you can save more than $1,200!
CFLs use 75% less energy than standard incandescent light bulbs.
Save the Earth
Okay, just installing a CFL won’t save the Earth. But, it’s one step that will make a difference in reducing energy use!
- One CFL equals about 9 incandescent bulbs, so that’s less solid waste in our local landfills.
- Using CFLs helps reduce the amount of energy needed to light your home, which ultimately translates into lower carbon emissions and a reduced impact on our region’s natural resources.
DP&L is offering discounts on CFLs and LEDs at these participating retailers:
Ace Hardware, Batteries Plus Bulbs, Big Lots, Costco, Home Depot, Meijer, Menards, Sam's Club, True Value, Walmart
