Pay Your Bill

Lighting

Lighting accounts for about 20% of annual household electricity bills, or approximately $200 per year. The higher the bulb wattage you use, the more electricity that’s needed to make it burn bright and more electricity used means higher energy costs for you. You can save money by switching to energy-efficient lighting. Generally, the most energy-efficient types of home lighting are CFLs and LEDs. Both provide high-quality light, use less energy, and last longer than standard bulbs.

Focus on Energy’s Lighting Program can help you save money and lower energy consumption. Instant discounts are available on lighting products at participating retailers across the state. Many of these retailers also offer in-store educational events to help you learn how to take advantage of other energy savings opportunities.
