Spring is a great time to think about making changes to get rid of things that don’t work that well anymore – like those inefficient incandescent light bulbs that use four times more energy than efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL).

Did you know replacing one inefficient bulb with a CFL – which lasts 10 times longer - could save you $30 over its lifetime? DP&L is giving Miami Valley shoppers three chances over the next few weeks to spring into savings by buying a CFL at a reduced price and getting one free at area retailers.

  • On Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lowe’s, 2900 Martin’s Drive, West Carrollton. Radio station WMMX-FM (107.7) will be broadcasting live from the store.
  • On Saturday, May 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Home Depot, 5860 Wilmington Pike, Centerville. Radio station WLQT-FM (94.5) will be broadcasting live from the store.
  • On Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Sam’s Club, 6955 Miller Road, Dayton. Radio station WHKO-FM (99.1) will be broadcasting live from the store.

For each qualified CFL bulb you buy during each event, you will receive a free 13 watt soft white CFL bulb from DP&L (each shopper is limited to six free bulbs).

DP&L representatives will also be on hand to discuss energy-saving tips and offer suggestions about how and where to use your new CFL bulbs. There will also be displays of a hand-cranked generator and a bike allowing visitors to generate enough energy to light up different types of bulbs.

If you can't make it to the three events, you can still save money by buying a variety of CFL bulbs for discounted prices at each location all year long.

DP&L's energy saving programs, introduced in 2009, have saved DP&L's business and residential customers enough energy to power 40,000 homes for a year.

Since 2009, energy-smart shoppers have bought more than 5.5 million DP&L discounted compact fluorescent light bulbs at retailers like Lowe’s, Walmart, Home Depot, and Sam's Club.

CFL Facts

  • One CFL equals about 9 incandescent bulbs, meaning less waste in landfills.
  • CFLs use 75% less energy and last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
  • Switching 5 of your most used light bulbs to CFLs could save you up to $50 per year on your electricity bill.
  • If every home in Ohio replaced just one light bulb with an energy-efficient CFL, we would save enough energy to light more than 156,000 homes for a year.
  • Lighting costs are typically 20% of a home electric bill.
  • CFLs produce less heat, helping reduce cooling costs during warmer months.
