Wrap your brain around this: incandescent light bulbs were invented by Thomas Edison in 1879. It seems like perhaps we should have made some progress since then… Well guess what? We have!

You can light your home with better quality light and use much less energy by switching from traditional light bulbs to LEDs. LED stands for light emitting diode and they are extremely long-lasting and energy efficient, using up to 85% less energy than a standard incandescent bulb. One LED bulb can save up to $80 over its lifetime in energy costs.

LEDs have an extremely long life and superior energy efficiency, saving you energy and money for years to come. Plus, you can get instant discounts on qualifying LED bulbs from Energy Trust of Oregon at local retailers to make the switch more affordable. Start by switching the bulbs in your home that you use the most, or those that are on for the longest periods of time to get the biggest energy savings.
