Georgia Power and two metro Atlanta Kroger food stores have recently teamed up to provide shoppers with energy efficiency information and $1 off coupons on General Electric compact fluorescent light bulbs.

Leslie Sibert, Georgia Power’s executive partner with Kroger, said: Educating consumers through these planned retail events is an important component of Georgia Power’s Energy Star program. By making our Energy Star expert available it helps motivate customers to take action to save energy and money while at the same time helping protect the environment.

Linda Treadwell, general merchandise category manager for Kroger, said: Kroger has introduced several new programs and products that provide Kroger customers with a greater number of environmentally conscious choices. It was our pleasure to have Georgia Power in our stores to show customers the difference they can make when they purchase compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs).
