Switch to Save: Convert Your Household to LED
on Monday, January 27, 2020
Convert your lights to LED for a simple yet impactful way to save energy and money in your home.
Replacing just one light with an LED bulb will save you an average of $80 in electricity costs over its lifetime. As you think about all the lights in your home, those dollars can quickly become meaningful.
Old light bulbs or incandescent bulbs produce light by heating a metal filament until it becomes “white” hot.
LED technology produces light approximately 90% more efficiently and can light your home to the same level of brightness so you don’t have to sacrifice quality to save energy.
LED bulbs also last up to 25 times longer than an incandescent bulb.
To help you make the switch, CFU contributes towards the cost of LED bulbs.
CFU sponsors the Iowa Be Bright program and provides residents with an instant rebate when you purchase qualified LED bulbs from a local participating retailer.
Money is applied towards the cost of these bulbs, passing the savings along to you at the point of purchase. The marked price of Be Bright bulbs reflects this savings, eliminating the need for rebate paperwork.
When at your local store, look for the Iowa Be Bright sign to be sure you are buying a qualified, Energy Star approved LED bulb. Energy Star bulbs are independently certified to ensure they meet efficiency and performance standards in operating environments similar to how you will use the product in your home.
