Last year, the utility holding company, distribution more than 10 million free bulbs to 1 million residential customers, saving enough energy to power nearly 45,000 homes. Some retailers such as Ikea, which has a store in West Chester Township, have begun phasing out traditional incandescent bulbs in the wake of new federal energy-efficient standards taking effect this year. CFLs use 75 percent less energy and last up to 10 times longer than standard light bulbs. Replacing a home's six most frequently used incandescent bulbs with CFLs can save more than $180 over the lifetime of the bulbs, they said. Duke customers can request FREE CFL's by going to www.duke-energy.com/residential-savings-store or by calling (800)-943-7585. - Mike Boyer (Cincinnati Enquirer)
