2016 “Be Bright” ENERGY STAR® LED Campaign

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Be Bright this fall! Through December 31, while supplies last, our residential electric customers are eligible for reduced pricing on ENERGY STAR® qualified LED light bulbs at participating local and area retailers, for as little as $0.99 each. Rochester retailers this year include Arrow Ace Hardware, Batteries Plus Bulbs, Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, Sam’s Club, and Walmart.

ENERGY STAR-labeled LEDs use 80% less energy and last up to 25 times longer than incandescent light bulbs – but less watts doesn’t mean less light! LEDs produce bright light for less cost because they use less electricity and last longer than incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs – saving time and money on replacements.

By replacing the five most used bulbs in your home with energy-efficient LEDs, you can save about $40 in energy costs during the first year alone. LEDs also produce less heat than incandescents – improving safety.

While these financial savings are a big draw, LEDs also offer environmental benefits to help make our community a little greener.

Remember, supplies are limited, so get your discounted LEDs before they sell out! Discounted LEDs purchased during this promotion are not eligible for our LED rebate program.
