MidAmerican promotes low-cost fluorescent bulbs


MidAmerican Energy Co. is encouraging businesses and residences in Iowa to participate in the Be Bright campaign, which through Dec. 16 offers special pricing on Energy Star-qualified compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) at area retailers. According to MidAmerican, replacing one incandescent light bulb with a CFL can save an average of $30 or more in energy costs over the life of the bulb and can prevent more than 450 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions. With the special pricing, the CFLs will be sold for as little as 99 cents each at select locations. For information about participating retailers, visit
