Free lightbulbs at Bunnings

The Belconnen Bunnings is giving away free compact fluorescent lightbulbs as part of an energy conservation scheme funded by the NSW and ACT governments.

Seems like a good idea. As much as we science bloggers love to think that all of humanity is clamouring to hear more about how everything works, our my sitelogs suggest that this may not be the case.

Fact is, most people aren’t that interested in how lightbulbs work. As such, they probably aren’t going to go out and spend an extra 6 bucks on a bulb that looks like an electrocuted pretzel. But if you give away enough bulbs to make a dent in their energy bill, then they are much more likely to be converted. So, for both of you local readers, here’s the deal: you can get a sixpack of compact fluoros at Bunnings for free this weekend.
