It was told to all Ohioans that First Energy would be forcing these new energy efficient bulbs on us - whether we want them or not. And, will assess a charge of an additional 60 cents every month on our bills for 3 years. That would mean these bulbs (2 of them) would cost each consumer $21.60, when, in reality, you can buy the exact same bulbs at Home Depot for maybe $5.00 a pair. The worst thing? First Energy has contracted a company OUT OF THE COUNTRY to supply the bulbs. So, we're forced to pay a helluvalot more for something many don't want AND something made in another country (China, most likely). Sadly, PUCO was allowing it to happen, but our Governor stepped in requesting answers to some questions concerning this rip-off and has put a halt on it for now. But, for how long? Until the Gov is paid off by them?
So, if you were one of these First Energy customers, how would YOU feel?

Are these the wonderful fluorescent bulbs? The ones with mercury in them? The ones that are the wonder bulbs that save energy now; however, they are toxic and can't be disposed of in the land fill. Those bulbs?
