ENERGY STAR: Take the ENERGY STAR Pledge

Commercial

Using energy efficient products in homes can not only save you energy and money, but also the environment. If every American replaced just one light bulb with on that has earned the ENERGY STARĀ® stamp of approval, we would prevent nearly six billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions per year, that’s equivalent to the emissions from 550,000 cars!

ENERGY STAR certified LEDs also use up to 90 percent less energy than standard bulbs and last up to 25 times longer. A single bulb can save $55 over the lifetime of the product and last over 12 years with typical use.

Human activities such as electricity production and transportation add significant amounts of carbon pollution to the atmosphere. By cutting down on energy consumption, we can drastically reduce our carbon footprint.

Demonstrate your commitment to brightening a life and take the ENERGY STAR Pledge. By taking the pledge, you are committing and inspiring others to choose ENERGY STAR rated lamps. As part of the ENERGY STAR Change the World Tour, lighting manufacturers, utilities and others are making charitable donations in exchange for your energy efficient purchases.
