Lighting

Upgrade to energy-efficient ENERGY STAR® LEDs in your lighting and get instant discounts—up to $7 per bulb—from Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative! When you buy select bulbs from participating retailers, the savings are included in the purchase price at the register.

Why use LEDs?

  • LEDs last up to 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs and use 75% less energy. That means you save through lower energy costs and less frequent bulb replacements.
  • And, LEDs emit light in a specific direction, while incandescent bulbs emit light—and heat—in all directions.

Why Use Occupancy Sensors?

  • Get discounts up to $7 at participating Home Depot stores when you purchase occupancy sensors.
  • Occupancy sensors automatically turn the lights on when motion is detected and automatically turn them off when a room or area is empty, helping you reduce energy use.
  • They’re great for areas where lights are left on or in rooms that you often enter with your hands full, like bathrooms, hallways, and bedrooms.
