FREE Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs

at City Hall Wednesday

Free energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) will be given away on Wednesday, Jan. 21 from 12 noon – 2 p.m. on the first floor of City Hall, 200 Lincoln Ave. The City will distribute more than 300 bulbs, no more than 4 per household. No exchange is necessary.

Using CFLs is a simple way to save energy in your home everyday; without having to spend a lot of money. CFLs use 75 percent less electricity than traditional incandescent light bulbs and can last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. By using a CFL in a frequently used lamp, you can save about $30 or more in electricity costs over each bulb's lifetime, according to PNM.
