ENERGY STAR® Lighting

Switching to energy-efficient lighting is easy.

To make it easy and affordable, we have teamed up with retailers and manufacturers to offer discounted prices on a variety of ENERGY STAR-certified light bulbs.

Did you know that an energy-efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) bulb uses up to 90 percent less energy than traditional incandescent lighting, yet provides the same amount of light? Switching to energy-saving, ENERGY STAR-certified light bulbs is a cost-effective way to save you money and energy, and a way to help do your part for the environment. You’ll enjoy great light quality and the convenience of bulbs that last up to 25 times longer than traditional bulbs.

To earn the ENERGY STAR, a product must meet strict energy efficiency standards. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, created to promote energy-efficient products and energy-saving practices.


Finding energy-efficient lighting products is easy.

We work with retailers and manufacturers to promote and discount ENERGY STAR-certified lighting products. Today, most home improvement stores, major grocery stores, lighting stores, large discount department stores, warehouse stores and some thrift stores across our service area carry a range of ENERGY STAR-certified lighting products. So, finding the right energy-efficient lighting product for your home is easy! And when you purchase an ENERGY STAR-certified light bulb from a participating retailer, the cost has already been discounted as part of the price you pay at the register.

Energy-efficient light bulbs have come a long way since the first “twisty” compact fluorescent bulbs. Today, you’ll find an energy-saving bulb for nearly every application in your home. When you shop for bulbs, think about the fixture it will go in, the light output, and color you need for the mood you want to achieve.

Most people prefer soft, warm light in bedrooms, dining rooms, living rooms and rooms with warm paint tones. In workspaces, garages, rooms with cooler paint tones and outdoors, you may prefer cooler white light. ENERGY STAR-certified bulbs are available in a range of tones – warm to cool white – and brightness levels. To learn more and how to select the right light, CLICK HERE

LEDs have revolutionized energy-efficient lighting and are the latest in energy-efficient lighting technology. Most of us are familiar with LEDs from our electronics. We see them everywhere, telling us the equipment is on. Recent advances have made LED bulbs available for our homes. The bulbs – made with many small LEDs grouped in clusters – look similar to traditional incandescent light bulbs. LED technology has advanced rapidly, and many bulb styles are available. ENERGY STAR certified LEDs use up to 90 percent less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and last up to 25 years. LEDs also provide excellent color quality, dimming capability and turn on instantly.
