ENERGY STAR-rated CFLs use 75% less energy and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent light bulbs, but less watts doesn’t mean less light! Today’s CFLs produce bright light at less cost to consumers and businesses because they use less electricity and last longer than incandescent bulbs – saving time and money on replacements.

By replacing the five most used bulbs in your home with energy-efficient CFLs, you can save about $35 in energy costs during the first year alone. CFLs also produce about 75% less heat than incandescent – improving safety.

With the wide range of CFL shapes, sizes and styles now on the market, consumers can find an energy-efficient bulb for every situation and enjoy reduced energy costs all year long.

While these financial savings are a big draw for consumers, CFLs also offer environmental benefits to help make our community a little greener.

Remember, supplies are limited so get your discounted CFLs before they sell out! Discounted CFLs purchased during this promotion are not eligible for our CFL rebate program.
