Why didn't the utility include an offer to its customers on their invoice? "Check here and add $xx.xx to your payment to receive x CFL bulbs, which reduce energy consumption in your home."? Or they could have sent a separate offer letter. As it is, they're going to get sued, and they'll end up losing money from the litigation process.
