15 Free CFL Lightbulbs for Duke Energy Customers

I've updated this post from 2010 to include the correct link and new information! Also, please do not leave your address or account number in the comments below! You need to contact Duke Power directly to request your free lightbulbs.

Duke Energy is giving their customers 15 free CFL lightbulbs, which is nice for Duke Energy customers and irritating for everyone else like me. I tested my luck and called my power company asking where I could pick up free light bulbs. They laughed and made a counter proposal of “pay your bill by tonight or we're shutting off your power.” That's not the type of freebie I was looking for!

In order to claim your free bulbs, “eligible customers can order online or by telephone. For online ordering, go to your Online Services page and visit the β€œMy Products and Services” section. To order by phone, please call 800.943.7585. Customers can check eligibility by entering their account number, nine-digit Social Security number (SSN) OR phone number and last four digits of their SSN.”

Duke Energy Free CFL Lightbulbs Eligibility

  • Duke Energy residential electricity service customers with an active account.
  • Customers who live in a state where this energy efficiency offer has been approved.
  • Customers who have not yet met or exceeded the free bulb (CFL or LED) program bulb limit of 15.

Duke Energy only operates in six states (FL, IN, KY, NC, OH, SC), but they don't list which states contain eligible customers. Thus you'll want to follow the instructions above to see if you qualify for this freebie.

  4. A representative From Duke Energy transferred
    Me to a number who WOULD be able to assist my on my second attempt. THAT person told me on her computer screen, it stated all she could do was give me the SAME phone number I initially called. I informed her I had already spoke FINALLY to a person who said she could not help. Please inform me WHO to call. This has become very frustrating. Thank you

  10. I’m not a Duke customer, but your tip got me thinking that maybe my electric company would do something similar. Turns out they do. Maybe that would work for other people to.Thanks again for the tip about free cfl bulbs!

  11. Received my CFL bulbs but would like the email address or phone number for my niece to call for some. Please email me the contact and I will send it to her. My 15 are great and the 20 watt replaced a 100 watt bulb and the CFL is so much easier to read by. Thank you.
