They'll Change Your Lightbulbs for Free in Pacific Palisades

Pacific Palisades residents benefit from community desire to take emissions out of the air. Volunteers will replace lightbulbs with a free bulb-changing service.

Find green business solutions
electricity conservation The Palisades Green Initiative, which launched its compact fluorescent (CF) light bulb campaign last November, is now making an offer that any Palisadian would be hard-pressed to turn down: a free bulb-changing service.

Any homeowner who is willing to change out every light bulb in his/her home can contact the Palisades Green Initiative to do the work -- free of charge. Many people tend to change out their bulbs as the old incandescent bulbs burn out -- a natural inclination. But the energy efficiency of CF bulbs makes it less wasteful to replace working bulbs than it is to continue expending the energy to power them.

An added benefit of using the bulb-changing service is that they can assist the homeowner in finding and selecting the correct bulbs for the fixtures. CF bulbs are available for nearly every type of fixture except halogen.

Elderly and disabled residents are especially encouraged to use the service.

Not only will the Palisades Green Initiative install the CF bulbs, they will take the old bulbs and add them to a collection that will be turned into a sculpture. The Initiative has placed boxes throughout the Palisades where residents can deposit their old bulbs.

The Palisades Green Initiative is led by Karen Martinez-Cohen. If you would like to take advantage of the bulb-changing service, call her at (310)500-0906.
