Lighten up with CFLs

Practically since its invention, the traditional pear-shaped, incandescent light bulb has been a household staple, used in the majority of fixtures we use to light up our homes. Yet, incandescent bulbs are actually better at producing heat than light — in fact 90% of the energy they give off is heat. That wasted energy is money you are throwing away.
Save money on your energy bill by purchasing ENERGY STAR® qualified compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs).  CFLs screw into standard lamp sockets, and give off light that looks similar to the common incandescent bulbs — unlike the fluorescent lighting we associate with factories, offices and schools.

ENERGY STAR® is a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency that seeks to increase consumer awareness, interest and desire for energy efficient products, and is not affiliated with Duke Energy Corporation.
