SUMMARY

Georgia Power and the Office of Sustainability team up to give out energy saving, compact florescent light bulbs on campus



IMPACT

2,500 light bulbs have given out in 3 days for the last 7 years. That's 17,500 energy saving light bulbs total.



PROCEDURE

The Office of Sustainability partners with Georgia Power to giveaway the light bulbs at no cost to students. Not only does this reduce energy use, but it educates students on making energy-conscious choice when shopping for light bulbs in the future. 



MISTAKES & LESSONS LEARNED

Since this program has gone on for a while, most students already have one, if not several, of these light bulbs; therefore, it is important to reach the freshman class and drum up the importance to keep upperclassmen interested. 



FUTURE PLANS

Continuing to provide students with energy-conscious products to spark a way of thinking in that mindset for the future.
