Energy-efficient bulbs help customers save on bills

GREENVILLE, Miss. – In conjunction with WWISCAA’s Energy Conservation Workshop on Aug. 18, Entergy Mississippi donated 400 ENERGY STAR® certified Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs that were distributed to attendees.

The light bulbs, donated by the utility through its Entergy Solutions energy efficiency program, will help attendees reduce energy costs and allow them to put their Entergy bill savings towards other needs. CFLs use up to 75 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and last about 10 times longer.

Entergy Mississippi’s Entergy Solutions Residential Lighting Program also offers instant discounts on select ENERGY STAR certified CFL and LED bulbs to all Entergy Mississippi residential customers at local retailers. Customers can save up to $1.15 on select CFLs and up to $4 on select LEDs. A list of participating retailers can be found at
