Save Money on LED Bulbs with Be Bright

Posted on Tuesday, February 27, 2018

Lighting costs typically make up about 20% of your electric bill. You can save energy and money with a simple switch to LED light bulbs.

An Energy Star LED bulb lasts 10 to 25 times longer than standard incandescent bulbs. Just one LED bulb will save you an average of $40 or more in electricity costs over its lifetime.

LEDs are now available in many colors, including a warm white. And, unlike CFLs, they turn on instantly.

In 2018, CFU wants to make it easier to switch to LED light bulbs. We have expanded the opportunity for our customers to purchase light bulbs through the point-of-purchase Be Bright Program.

To save, go to a local participating retailer and look for the Be Bright label on the shelves in the lighting department. CFU provides a discount on the purchase price on the spot. With Be Bright, there are no rebates, no paperwork and no hassles.

The Be Bright label on the shelf is your sign that the bulb is discounted and you are purchasing an Energy Star bulb.

Energy Star certification means that the bulb has met industry standards for quality and efficiency. They are tested by accredited labs and certified by a third party.

Cedar Falls retailers include Target, Wal-Mart, Menards, Walgreens and Fareway. For an up-to-date list of local retailers and more information about LED bulbs, visit iowabebright.com.
