In the past a discount on energy efficient light bulbs was provided by the utility company in the form of a rebate. In 2014 Alliant Energy discontinued it’s rebate program for light bulbs and instead is co-sponsoring the Be Bright program.
The Be Bright program allows you to purchase certain light bulbs at a discounted price directly from the retail store. Look for the Be Bright label on the shelf near the price sticker. The benefit is that the discount is applied at the point of sale and no rebate forms are required.
- Only certain stores are participating in the program.
- Only certain light bulbs are selected.
- You must be utility customer of Alliant Energy or MidAmerican Energy.
- No rebates are available other than through the Be Bright program. If the store doesn’t participate or carry the brand/style of light bulbs you prefer then you are out of luck.
Participating stores and locations:
If your favorite store is not listed above then I encourage you to discuss with the store manager about participating. More information on the Be Bright program can be found at http://www.iowachangealight.com/.
