Get Big Discounts on LED Lights

LED lights

The benefits of upgrading your home’s lighting options just keep growing. Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative is now offering big discounts on select Energy Star light-emitting diode lights, or LED lights, at several participating retails in the Southern Maryland service area.

The savings, up to $7, are applied to the purchase price at the register at the retailers listed below. LEG lights also can be purchased with the same discounts on the SMECO online store, and the bulbs and other products can be delivered right to your home.

When you’re shopping for light bulbs and other items related to light fixtures, be sure to look for the lighting label. A lighting label is similar to the nutrition facts label that you find on food products. The label can help you choose the best bulb to meet your needs, and can help keep you from buying more light than you need, or from wasting energy. When it comes to LED lights, a little bit of power can go a long way.

There are many benefits to using LED lights. According to Energy Star, direct lighting applications like LEDs offer many advantages compared to incandescent lights like reduced energy use, energy cost savings and less frequent bulb replacements.

Ways to cut lighting costs:

  • Use daylight when it’s possible.
  • Reduce the amount of power required by the light. LEDs require less power than incandescent bulbs.
  • Don’t keep the light on all the time. Get into the habit of turning lights off when you leave the room and you will reduce your lighting costs.
