For Electric Customers
LEDs, or light emitting diodes, are small light sources that become illuminated by the movement of electrons through a semiconductor material. The use of LEDs saves up to 75% - 80% over the traditional incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs are rapidly expanding in household use. ENERGY STAR® certified LEDs use only about 20-25% of the energy and last up to 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. Learn more about lighting tips

LED lights are instant on because there is no warm up time. And since LEDs produce less heat, they save on air conditioning costs and perform well outside. Some of the areas where LEDs are used include: exit signs, accent or task lighting, refrigerated case lighting, outdoor area or landscape lighting, food preparation areas and many more.
