ENERGY STAR lighting
Light up your home for less
Our ENERGY STAR® lighting program offers an affordable and easy way to save energy and money by switching to energy-efficient light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs.
UES offers discounted prices on LED bulbs so that it’s economical for you to replace your incandescent bulbs. Lower-priced LED bulbs are sold through local participating retailers including Lowe’s, The Home Depot and Walmart. LED bulbs are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and brightness (lumens) for just about any application.
ENERGY STAR-qualified LEDs use up to 90 percent less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and last up to 25 times longer. They also generate about 90 percent less heat, so they're safer to operate and help reduce your home’s cooling costs.
The average U.S. household has 40 or more light bulbs in indoor and outdoor lighting. For every incandescent bulb that you replace with an LED bulb, you can save an average of $80 in energy costs over the lifetime of the bulb.
