CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX19) - Duke Energy is distributing 10 million free compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) to eligible customers in 2011.

"As people across the globe plan to turn off their lights Saturday during Earth Hour, Duke Energy is encouraging customers to take that opportunity to swap their bulbs to CFLs," said Gianna Manes, Duke Energy's senior vice president of retail customer products and services..

In 2010, Duke Energy distributed more than 10 million free CFLs to approximately one million residential customers, saving enough energy to power nearly 45,000 homes. CFLs use 75 percent less energy and last up to 10 times longer than standard light bulbs.

Duke Energy residential customers in North Carolina, South Carolina and Ohio can request complimentary CFLs be delivered to their homes at www.duke-energy.com/freecflsnow using either their account number or phone number and the last four digits of their Social Security number. Customers may also call (800) 943-7585 and choose option one to request the bulbs.
