Customers at select retailers will be able to save $1.75 to $8 per pack instantly on a variety of wattages and color temperatures to fit individual lighting needs. The promotion is available at participating Costco locations through June 26 and participating Home Depot or Walmart locations through August 31. Offers are good while quantities last, with a limit of 16 bulbs per customer.

"Our longstanding lighting program is helping customers make small adjustments that deliver big energy savings," said Michele Wagner, director of energy efficiency for Georgia Power. "CFLs and LEDs are exciting technologies that not only offer energy savings, but overall better quality, performance and versatility across a wide variety of lighting applications in homes and businesses."

Customers who take advantage of the program not only save when making the purchase, but should enjoy savings long into the future. ENERGY STAR certified CFL and LED lights consume 75 percent less energy than conventional incandescent lights with CFLs lasting up to seven years and LEDs lasting up to 25 years.

Georgia Power also continues its partnership with The Home Depot to offer recycling for CFL bulbs at the retailer's stores in Georgia. The company sponsors in-store bins at The Home Depot locations throughout the state, which creates the state's most widespread CFL recycling program.
