Discounted energy-saving CFL bulbs available this fall

Stores throughout the state are selling energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs for as little as $1 this fall. Xcel Energy is subsidizing lower prices on a variety of compact fluorescent bulbs at participating stores across Minnesota. The prices are available while supplies last.

By replacing one incandescent bulb with an Energy Star qualified CFL under the program, customers can reduce their own energy bill by up to $50 over the seven- to 10-year life of a 60-watt equivalent bulb, according to Xcel Energy.

To find participating stores in Minneapolis, visit MN Energy Challenge to take more steps to reduce CO2 emissions and save money on your utility bills.
