LED Light Bulbs
- Cut your electricity costs – ENERGY STAR® LEDs use at least 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs. You can save up to $6 annually on your electricity costs for each bulb you replace. An LED bulb will typically pay for itself in less than a year.
- Save on replacement bulbs – Don’t lose money and waste man hours replacing bulbs. LED bulbs can last up to 30,000 hours – that’s nine years if you use your lights for eight hours a day. These long lasting bulbs are also convenient for hard to reach places.
- Easy to install – Saving energy can be as easy as screwing in a lighting bulb.
- Better lighting performance. LEDs come on instantly, are dimmable, maintain light levels over time and provide higher quality light output and colour rendering.
To be eligible your business must have an active electricity account and reside in an existing commercial building. Applies to retrofits only.
The LED lamp must be screw in or pin based and must be ENERGY STAR certified.
Lights must be purchased on or after August 1, 2016 and used at a commercial property.
