This utility's 25,000 Western Slope of Colorado will get coupons for up to six of the energy efficient bulbs which will help them manage rising energy costs. A 13 watt compact fluorescent puts out the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent bulb, but it uses 78% less power and can last up to 10,000 hours compared to 750 hours for an incandescent bulb.
What a great way for this company to create a win win for their customers and themselves and not to be lost is that we all gain from reduction of energy use that contributes to global warming.
