LED Bulbs Made Easy
Only LED bulbs that have earned the Energy Star label have been independently certified and undergone extensive testing to assure that they will save energy and perform as promised.
Energy Star certified LED bulbs are available in a variety of shapes and sizes for any application—including recessed cans, track lighting, table lamps, and more. You can even find certified bulbs that are dimmable. Use the chart as a guide to finding the right Energy Star certified bulb for your light fixture and remember to always check the packaging for proper use.
Visit the Lighting Rebates webpage to purchase energy-efficient light bulbs and equipment.
For brightness, look for lumens, not watts. Lumens indicate light output. Watts indicate energy consumed. Energy Star certified bulbs provide the same brightness (lumens) with less energy (watts). Use this table to determine how many lumens you need to match the brightness of your old standard bulbs.
Color / Appearance
Energy Star certified bulbs are available in a wide range of colors. Light color, or appearance, matches a temperature on the Kelvin scale (K). Lower K means warmer, yellowish light, while higher K means cooler, bluer light.
