A simple light bulb swap can save energy and money. Next week, hundreds of Mississippi Power customers will be able to swap their less efficient incandescent bulbs with free high-efficiency compact florescent light bulbs.
Mississippi Power will give away up to 17,500 CFLs to customers throughout the service territory as part of the company’s new residential lighting program. CFLs use up to 75 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer.
Customers can pick up one package of 10 compact florescent light bulbs during regular business hours at select bill payment offices Oct. 6 – 10.
