Baldwin EMC recently made the switch from carrying CFL (compact fluorescent light) bulbs to LED (light emitting diode) bulbs, a more energy-efficient and long-lasting option. With a small inventory of CFL bulbs still on hand, the co-op elected to donate the surplus of unused CFL bulbs to local charitable organizations.
“This was a great opportunity for us to serve the community by providing these organizations with something they can really use,” says Baldwin EMC Manager of Energy Services Greg Gipson. “These CFL bulbs were in new and perfect condition, we’re just not stocking them anymore. We were glad to serve these organizations, who in turn serve members of our community.”
Approximately 800 bulbs were divided among ARC Baldwin County, Baldwin County Boys Ranch, Prodisee Pantry and Youth Reach Gulf Coast.
