Red Deer residents can trade in two old incandescent or compact fluorescent light bulbs for two new LED bulbs starting August 16.
“LED light bulbs use much less electricity than incandescent and CFL bulbs, and can last up to 25,000 hours,” said Lauren Maris, Environmental Program Specialist with The City of Red Deer.
Residents can take their incandescent or CFL bulbs and exchange them for free LED bulbs at Kerry Wood Nature Centre from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting August 16 while supplies last. A limit of four bulbs can be exchanged per household.
“Switching to LED light bulbs is an easy way to save energy in your home. We hope that by giving residents the chance to try LED bulbs, they will make the more environmentally responsible choice the next time they purchase light bulbs,” Maris said.
The program is open to Red Deer residents and proof of residence will be required, for example by showing a driver’s license or utility bill.
