Garland Power & Light Partners with The Home Depot for Energy Saving Lighting Program
Garland, Texas, August 3, 2007 – Garland Power & Light is partnering with The Home Depot to provide GP&L customers with a program encouraging the use of compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Utility customers will have an opportunity to purchase CFLs at discounted prices at Home Depot for a limited period of time. To introduce the program, GP&L will host "Switch on the Savings" events featuring energy efficient lighting demonstrations at two Garland Home Depot locations.
Switch on the Savings events will be held Saturday, August 11 at the Home Depot at 3261 N. George Bush Hwy. and Sunday, August 12 at the Home Depot at 2140 Jupiter Road. Event hours are noon to 5:00 p.m. each day.
CFLs are a significant way that consumers can reduce their energy use. They use about a third of the electricity and last up to ten times as long as incandescent light bulbs. Typically CFLs are more expensive to purchase, but the savings in energy use more than offsets the initial costs. Special pricing at the Switch on the Savings events will make the purchase of CFLs even more appealing.
“We’re excited to bring energy efficient lighting options to our customers,” said GP&L’s David Koliba. “CFLs can be used in most types of light fixtures. We encourage customers to see this for themselves at these events, and then take advantage of the discounted cost," said Koliba. The discounted bulbs will only be available while supplies last.
GP&L also offers online energy efficiency services for homes and businesses on this web site. By using GP&L’s Energy Depot services, customers can create personalized energy audits, calculate savings, compare energy use, use an energy library, and contact a GP&L energy advisor.
