Get the brightness, quality, and color you demand, from a technology that lasts years longer than traditional lighting.
Compared with traditional light sources like incandescents, fluorescents, and halogens, LEDs are more efficient, generate less heat, and give the same amount of light. ENERGY STAR® certified and Design Lights Consortium (DLC) qualified LEDs also last up to 50,000 hours. Fast-advancing technology and falling prices mean real savings potential for homeowners and businesses—especially when LEDs are matched to the right fixture for maximum efficiency.
Why the ENERGY STAR logo matters
When purchasing an LED, look for the blue ENERGY STAR logo on the packaging. The ENERGY STAR label guarantees quality, performance, and efficiency. Bulbs that are not ENERGY STAR certified do not meet the high standards for brightness, color, energy use, and lifetime rating. High quality ENERGY STAR LEDs are readily available at retailers throughout Vermont and are more affordable than ever, making this a great time to upgrade.
What are LEDs?Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are electronic devices that light up when electrical current moves through them. No filament, no gas, no mercury. While colored LEDs were invented in the 1960s, the technology to create white light from LEDs didn’t exist until the 1990s. LEDs are now used in applications as varied as digital displays, airport runways, horticulture lamps, municipal streetlights, and increasingly, home and business lighting.
Indoor LED Lighting
LEDs are highly directional, illuminating only where needed. That means less wasted light and heat, better ambience, and lower electric bills for you. LEDs cover a wide range of applications for interior spaces, both residential and commercial: reading and task lights, table lamps, decorative fixtures, display and freezer cases, under-cabinets, overhead fixtures, track lights, recessed downlights, and more.
- Increase comfort and productivity, save money in your home or business
- Enjoy superior light quality and color choice (cool bright white to warm white)
- Illuminate only the areas you need to: highly directional light
Outdoor LED Lighting
High-efficiency LEDs can lower energy costs and make outdoor spaces safer and more secure. With the right design, fixtures, and automatic controls, outdoor LEDs can also give more uniform light while consuming less energy. They’re used everywhere from parking garages to streetlights, security floodlights, canopy and wall-mounts, and decorative path lights for the home.
- Lower your bill with high-efficiency bulbs, fixtures, and controls
- Boost safety and security with automated lighting controls
- Reduce skyglow (light pollution) for a cleaner environment
