Puget Sound Energy to Introduce LED Light Bulbs [Professional Services Close - Up]

(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Puget Sound Energy announced the availability of light emitting diode bulbs and fixtures for the utility's residential electric customers at participating retail stores.

"For the last few years, the high price of LED bulbs has prevented many consumers from investing in the efficient and long lasting bulbs," said Cal Shirley, vice president of Customer Solutions at PSE, in a release.

"LED bulbs are a great technology; they save energy and last an incredibly long time. Now that the price of LED bulbs has dropped and with available discounts, the era of the LED bulb has arrived. At PSE we're doing what we can to support consumer adoption of efficient technology that helps customers save energy and money." PSE has the following tips: 1. If you're looking for a great deal on LED bulbs, PSE offers up to $10 off a variety of LED bulbs and fixtures that meet Energy Star specifications at participating retailers, which can be found at PSE.com/LightingRetailers.


2. Consider bundling additional energy-saving gadgets, such as motion sensors, with your LED purchase. This will allow you to start shifting to LED bulbs while adding hands-free lighting controls at home.

3. LED bulbs can be used anywhere you would put conventional incandescent and CFL bulbs, but it's important to match the right bulb to the right socket and application. If you intend to use an LED bulb in a table lamp, on a dimmer switch in a recessed can, or if you need to ensure even lighting in every direction (omni- directional lighting) be sure you buy an LED bulb that will meet your needs. Look on the package to ensure you purchase the correct bulb for the fixture you intend to use it in.

4. When buying new bulbs, take a look at the Lighting Facts label. Similarly to EnergyGuide labels found on appliances and electronics, the Lighting Facts table will show you everything you need to know to make quick product comparisons. Brightness, light appearance, yearly operating costs and disposal tips can all be found on the Lighting Facts table.

Puget Sound Energy is an energy utility.
