PNM carrying the light bulb for energy efficiencyDecember 10th, 2012 at 3:09 pm by ryanprice under Latest Posts
In just over five years, the PNM discounted compact fluorescent light bulbs have accomplished huge amounts in saving electricity and money for customers.
PNM has reached an energy efficiency milestone of five million “CFL” bulbs, saving $33.7 million for PNM customers and enough electricity to power 42,000 New Mexico homes for a year.
“This is a great example of how the little energy efficiency changes add up,” said Emma van Moorsel, PNM energy efficiency program developer “While CFLs are an easy and low cost way to save energy, when used by many they are responsible for a large amount of energy savings.”
PNM wants to continue this trend so they have partnered with nearly 160 stores statewide to give customers a discount when they purchase any “CFL” bulbs.
