Coming to a light socket near you: Wal-Mart's own brand energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs, which the big-box retailer plans to unleash at more than 3,000 of its U.S. stores by the end of September.

While Wal-Mart will continue to sell other brand-name bulbs alongside its own Great Value line, it says it hopes the new, more-affordable bulbs will help it achieve its goal of selling 100 million CFLs before 2007 runs out.

"We want to make eco-friendly living more affordable for our customers and with the Great Value CFLs, we can make energy-efficiency easy at an unbeatable price," said Wal-Mart Senior Vice President Andy Barron in a press release. ::GreenBiz News
