October 27, 2016

Las Cruces, New Mexico - El Paso Electric (EPE) will offer New Mexico residential customers the opportunity to trade in their used incandescent light bulbs for free ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs. This incentive is part of the ENERGY STAR® Change the World Tour which aims at helping people conserve energy and protect the climate.

The trade-in event will take place this Friday, October 28, 2016 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the entrance to Walmart Supercenter, located at 1550 S. Valley Drive, Las Cruces, NM. Customers can bring up to four incandescent light bulbs, in any condition, to trade for up to four free A-lamp LED bulbs while supplies last. This offer is available to EPE New Mexico residential electric customers only.

In addition, EPE’s Energy Efficiency team members will be on hand to provide information on the difference between lumens vs. watts, choosing the lighting color temperature for a room, and other energy efficiency programs available.

Customers in New Mexico who may not be able to make the trade-in event are encouraged to visit a participating store for discounted LED and CFL light bulbs. Click here for a complete list of participating vendors. 

ENERGY STAR® LED light bulbs feature an 85% savings over old light bulbs and last up to 20 times longer. Other advantages include they emit very little heat and provide a direct light source, which help reduce lighting and cooling costs.
