The Home Depot, the world's largest home improvement retailer, reports that it is helping California residents save an estimated U.S. $4.8 million in energy costs with an unprecedented energy-efficient light bulb giveaway. On Oct. 4, The Home Depot gave a total of 100,000 n:vision compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) to California residents who visited select The Home Depot stores. In partnership with lighting innovator TCP, Inc., the light bulb giveaway was in celebration of the ENERGY STAR(R) national Change a Light, Change the World Day.

To receive a free light bulb, residents had to visit one of the 158 The Home Depot stores participating and sign the ENERGY STAR Change a Light pledge, indicating they will replace one standard incandescent light bulb with an energy-efficient CFL. In addition to the free light bulb, Californians also received a special $4 coupon that can be used for purchasing a variety of multi-pack CFLs. Participating California stores will give away n:vision bulbs on a first come, first serve basis while supplies last.

The ENERGY STAR Change a Light, Change the World national educational campaign includes partnerships with hundreds of retail stores, manufacturers, energy-efficiency organizations and state governments. The campaign takes place each October, during Energy Awareness Month, and around the transition to daylight-saving time.

Named the ENERGY STAR Retail Partner of the Year, The Home Depot also is hosting free in-store clinics and launching a new virtual home at homedepot.com/energy, where consumers can get energy-saving tips and experience related products.
