New Website Helps Consumers Save Money and Energy with CFL Deals

October 6, 2009

ELLENTON, Fla., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ — Saving money and finding deals on compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs just got a little easier, thanks to the recent launch of SwitchTheBulb.com, a new website designed to help consumers get the most for their money while doing their part for the environment.

SwitchTheBulb.com serves a two-fold purpose: to educate the public about the energy-saving benefits of CFLs, and to serve as a resource for consumers looking for bargains on CFL bulbs. The website features an interactive map of the United States which allows visitors to view CFL incentive programs offered by their local utility companies, as well as CFL deals at major retailers.

“Everyone wants to save money these days, and every little bit helps,” said Sean Murray, founder of SwitchTheBulb.com. “Many people have heard about CFLs and know they help our environment by using less energy than traditional light bulbs, but what most people don’t realize is how much money they can save by replacing the light bulbs in their homes with CFLs.”

According to experts, the average consumer can expect to save the equivalent of up to two months of utility bills by switching from traditional incandescent bulbs to CFLs. The environmental impact caused by said switch is roughly equal to removing two cars from the highway for one year. “That’s impressive,” said Murray. “It’s a win-win situation for everyone – consumers, the economy and the environment.”

SwitchTheBulb.com offers consumers the option to purchase CFL bulbs via its affiliate partners, including Wal-Mart, 1000Bulbs.com, BulbAmerica.com, eLightBulbs.com and WholeSaleBulbs.net.

Also on the site is a savings chart that compares the annual lighting costs of CFLs verses traditional bulbs and estimates potential annual utility bill savings yielded by CFLs. Other features on the site include a blog with energy-saving tips and a link to order SwitchTheBulb merchandise.
