Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – DP&L and The Foodbank teamed up to distribute light bulbs Wednesday afternoon.

The groups gave out more than 1,000 energy-efficient bulbs to Miami Valley families. The goal is to help families cut down on energy bills.

“We’re trying to help out those families who need a little bit of help with food but may also need help with their energy bills, so we’re giving out three LED light bulbs to each household along with a tip sheet on how to save money. Those light bulbs use 70 to 90 percent less energy than your traditional incandescent bulb and they can last up to 25 years,” says Holly Wiggins, Director of Community Outreach with DP&L.

DP&L says if families use them, they can save up to $3,200 over the life of the bulb.
