    CHANGE A LIGHT BULB, SAVE THE WORLD

    CHANGE A LIGHT BULB, SAVE THE WORLD
    Program lowers cost of energy-saving bulbs
    Peggy Kreimer, September 28, 2006 (The Cincinnati Post)
    - Duke Energy is putting a new twist on how to lower energy bills - use an energy-saving twisted fluorescent light that screws into conventional lamp sockets.

    - The lights usually sell for $5 or more. Typical utility customers who replace the lights in their five most frequently used light fixtures with the new fluorescent lights can save more than $60 a year in energy costs...
    - Northern Kentucky Duke Energy customers will be able to buy up to 12 of the Energy Star fluorescent lights for 99 cents each through a special program next week called Change a Light, Change the World...The sale price reflects a collaboration among General Electric, Duke Energy and an array of retailers who will be offering the discounted lights...

    - The program is part of Duke Energy's effort to get 40,000 energy efficient lights into Northern Kentucky homes by the end of the year...
    - Special events to sell the lights this spring were held in Ludlow and Alexandria. An event in Covington in 2005 sold 7,000 lights...The lights are available in 60, 75 and 100 watts.
