Free CFL Light Bulbs? Of Course Not

They are going to leave them on your doorstep and charge way more than they cost, whether you use them or not. That’s the liberal way of doing things, by force if you don’t agree with them.

FirstEnergy Corp. is getting ready to leave two high-efficiency light bulbs on your doorstep. But they’re not a gift.

The utility will charge average users 60 cents a month extra on their electric bills for the next three years — $21.60 all together. That covers the cost of the bulbs ($3.50 each), their delivery and the delivery of the power consumers would have used if they didn’t have them.

The good news: These compact fluorescent bulbs will reduce your electricity use. If you replace two 100-watt incandescent bulbs with these 23-watt, warm-white CFLs, you’ll save $60 by the time they burn out in five to seven years, according to FirstEnergy.

And you’ll pay for the bulbs whether you use them or not, so it makes sense to use them.

  1. I have the CFL lightbulbs. They are NOT lasting 5 years, let alone 7.

  2. I have yet to see anything come out of the green movement “as advertised”.
