SMART Lighting Program Savings with a Twist

One of the simplest and most effective ways to reduce your electric bill is to replace existing incandescent light bulbs with ENERGY STAR qualified lighting, such as compact fluorescent lights (CFLs).

Appalachian Power is working with these participating stores to offer our West Virginia customers instant rebates on energy-efficient lighting. Look for the Appalachian Power Company (APCO) label on the shelf for qualifying bulbs. CFL availability may vary depending on retailer.

There is a 12-bulb limit per purchase. Product selection varies by store and retailer. Rebates are available while supplies last.

ENERGY STAR qualified light bulbs:

  • Use up to 75% less energy
  • Last up to 10 times longer
  • Save an average of $30 in energy costs over their lifetime
  • Produce 75% less heat
  • Help the environment by saving energy.

Determining the Correct Wattage
Incandescent bulb CFL equivalent Lifetime Savings
40 watt 9-11 watt $15-$17
60 watt 13-17 watt $23-$26
75 watt 18-20 watt $30-$31
100 watt 23-26 watt $40-$42
150 watt 32-42 watt $59-$64
Savings are based on 6000-hour bulb lifetime, burning 3 hours per day at 9.1 cents per kWh.

CFL handling and disposal
CFLs contain a small amount of mercury and need to be disposed of properly, preferably recycled. Find recycling centers in your area at earth911.com.
