According to the Snohomish County PUD more efficient lighting is on the way!
With changing federal standards, new light bulbs need to consume 30 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. While the requirements will be phased in over several years, in 2012, the 100-watt bulb was replaced with more efficient, lower wattage bulbs – halogen incandescents, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) and LEDs.
More and more consumers are turning to LEDs, which are highly efficient and last up to 20 years. With LED prices coming down – and PUD discounts at local retailers – it’s an ideal time to try these out in your home. PUD continues to offer discounts on compact fluorescent lights, too.
