Here’s a bright idea: Swap out your light bulbs for ENERGY STAR–certified LEDs to see a big savings in your electric bill.

There’s no better time since through this special Con Edison–sponsored program you can get a wide array of LEDs for almost as little as traditional light bulbs.

Why Choose ENERGY STAR LEDs

Quality and Longevity

LED bulbs that have earned the ENERGY STAR label have undergone independent, third-party testing to ensure that they will perform as promised. On average, LEDs last up to 15 years, reducing waste and the burden of replacing burned-out bulbs.

Unlike standard light bulbs, LEDs stay cool to the touch, making them an excellent choice for homes with children or pets.

Energy Efficiency

While a standard bulb costs about $7 a year to power, LEDs will run you just $1. And since they last up to 15 times longer than your average light bulb, a small upfront investment can add up to big savings over time. Overall, you can save up to $55 in electricity over the lifetime of each bulb!

Color and Appearance

LEDs are available in a wide range of colors to suit any space or task. Light color is measured on the Kelvin (K) scale—a lower K means warmer light, while a higher K means cooler light.

WARM

COOL

Soft White, Warm White

Neutral White, Cool White

Daylight

Similar to traditional incandescent and halogen bulbs. Ideal for most indoor spaces.

Good for kitchens and work spaces.

Think blue sky at noon. Perfect for reading.

 

Brightness

90% of the electricity used by standard bulbs produces heat, while only 10% produces light. LEDs keep their cool and utilize electricity for light output (lumens) exclusively. They provide the same level of brightness as standard bulbs while consuming far less energy (watts).

Plus, since LEDs stay cool to the touch, they’re an excellent choice for homes with children or pets.
