Choosing ENERGY STAR® qualified products — from light bulbs to water heaters — can help you reduce your electricity use every day. PPL Electric Utilities is helping you save on these smart products with E-power® rebates and discounts at local retailers.

Due to an overwhelming customer response, demand for free Smart Strips is exceeding our available inventory. The last day to request an installation appointment is November 30, 2013.

Did you know that our electronics, even when they are turned off, are still drawing an electric current? That’s called phantom power, and you’re paying for it… in fact, it can account for 12% of all residential power consumption.

Installing a Smart Strip with your TV and computer can help you cut the phantom power that is eating your energy bills, saving you about $38 per year in energy costs.

To schedule a Smart Strips installation appointment, call 1-855-4PPL-PLUG (1-855-477-5758). Hurry, the supply is very limited!

Making the switch from CFLs to LEDs? If you're replacing your CFLs because they're burned out, or you just want to start using LEDs right away, PPL Electric Utilities is helping you "close the loop" and keep CFL bulbs out of landfills.

What should I do with my used CFLs?

CFLs contain a trace amount of mercury, and while one CFL does not pose a hazard to you or to the environment, there are millions of CFLs currently being used in households and businesses. It's important that we all make an effort to keep large concentrations of CFLs out of landfills by recycling them and not throwing them in the trash.

What do I do if my CFL breaks?

The EPA recommends these simple, specific steps for cleaning up broken bulbs:

  • Before cleanup, open a window for 15 minutes and turn off your heat or A/C.
  • Scoop up the glass fragments and powder using stiff paper or cardboard – do not sweep or vacuum. Sticky tape can help get glass or powder out of carpet. If the CFL breaks on a hard surface, wipe the area clean with a paper towel.
  • Place all cleaned-up materials in a sealable plastic bag and place it in your outdoor trash container. For several hours, if reasonable, leave the heat or HVAC system turned off.


The locations listed below voluntarily offer FREE recycling of spent CFLs. Make sure the bulb is still intact and drop it off in the recycling partner's recycling bin or pail.
