The government is phasing out traditional, incandescent light bulbs, and if you do too it could save you money.

Batteries Plus Bulbs talked to WDBJ7 morning about the savings you'll see on your electric bill if you switch to compact florescent light bulbs or LED's.

The initial investment will cost you, but in the long run the energy efficiency of the new bulbs will add up to savings.

Additionally, compact florescent bulbs and LED bulbs last up to 30 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
