Here's how my electric company is helping me:
To help customers use energy more efficiently, we’re
delivering two compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs)
to the homes of residential customers of FirstEnergy’s
Ohio operating companies -- Ohio Edison Company, The
Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company, and Toledo
Edison Company. These types of bulbs use up to 75
percent less electricity than incandescent bulbs
and can last 10 times longer -- contributing to
significant money and energy savings over the life
of the bulb.
Providing energy-efficient light bulbs is just one
way we can help our customers save money while also
helping the environment.
They didn't mention that my monthly electric bills will
include a new 60 cent charge for the next three years
($21.60). It covers the cost of the two bulbs, shipping,
and it reimburses First Energy for their lost income
'cuz I will be using less electricity.
I hope they don't send me more bulbs.
