Lighting Education


Earning the ENERGY STAR certification means the product meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Lighting products that have earned the ENERGY STAR label deliver exceptional quality, while using less energy. Saving energy helps you save money on utility bills and protects the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

ENERGY STAR® Certified Light Bulbs:

  • Use about 70-90% less energy than traditional incandescents and halogen bulbs.
  • Last 10 to 25 times longer and save $30 to $80 in electricity costs over their lifetime.
  • Meet strict quality and efficiency standards that are tested by accredited labs and certified by a third party.
