Philips Lighting Commits More Than 2,000 LED Lightbulbs to NEA’s Household Energy-saving Challenge

Philips Lighting, a global leader in lighting, announced its support to the National Environment Agency (NEA)’s “Energy-Saving Challenge”, taking place from 1 July 2017 to 30 September 2017. It aims to distribute more than 2,000 energy-efficient LED light bulbs to participating households who sign up at the challenge roadshows.

This support is part of Philips Lighting’s commitment to bring light beyond illumination to Singaporean households, and is part of an overall initiative to inspire the population to actively care for and protect the environment as well as adopt eco-friendly and socially gracious lifestyles. Under NEA’s “Energy-Saving Challenge”, households that manage to reduce their electricity use by 1 per cent or more could stand to win prizes worth more than S$70,000 in total. Philips Lighting Singapore is the only lighting company amongst all Gold sponsors of the “Energy-Saving Challenge”.

The Philips LED light bulbs committed as part of the competition are rated at 4 watts, and impart savings of up to 87 per cent over conventional lightbulbs. In addition to electricity savings, the non-visible flickering technology delivers light quality that is gentler and more comfortable to the eyes – an important consideration given that many households have school-going children and myopia is detected at a younger age.

“As an organization that sees sustainability as both a promise and a commitment to the community, our support to NEA gives us the opportunity to inspire homeowners to be more attuned to their daily energy expenditure and eye health. We are proud to be playing a major role in this campaign, committing energy-efficient light bulbs to households that are taking charge in their life-long journey towards environmental sustainability and eye health,” said Alok Ghose, Managing Director and Cluster Leader for Philips Lighting in Singapore, Malaysia & Exports.

The Challenge is open to all Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents who are current SP Group account holders and have opened their account for their residential addresses before 1 April 2017.
