Puget Sound Energy has introduced cutting edge LED light bulbs and fixtures for the utility’s residential electric customers at participating retail stores.
“For the last few years, the high price of LED bulbs has prevented many consumers from investing in the efficient and long lasting bulbs,” said Cal Shirley, vice president of Customer Solutions at PSE. “LED bulbs are a great technology; they save energy and last an incredibly long time. Now that the price of LED bulbs has dropped and with available discounts, the era of the LED bulb has arrived. At PSE we’re doing what we can to support consumer adoption of efficient technology that helps customers save energy and money.”
For each incandescent bulb replaced with an LED bulb, customers save about $6 per year in energy costs. The average household can save $150 a year in energy costs by replacing the 25 most frequently used lights in the home with LED bulbs.
