Energy-Efficient Lighting

Lighting accounts for up to 10% of your home’s cost for electricity. Recruiting all-star bulbs can make a big difference on your power bill. That’s why your Team Up electric co-op offers an easy online shopping for energy-efficient lighting. Click the appropriate link below to access your cooperativeʼs online store. The Residential Store offers the most common products for many homes. The Small Business/Ag Store offers commercial products as well as bulk quantity for some products.

The two most common forms of energy-efficient lighting are Compact Florescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) and Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs). Here are some distinctions:

CFLs:
  • Use 75% less energy than incandescent light bulbs.
  • Last 8 to 10 times longer than incandescent light bulbs.
  • Come in different sizes and shapes to fit almost any fixture.
  • Start slower; can take about a minute to reach full light output.
LEDs:
  • Use 75% less energy than incandescent light bulbs.
  • Last up to 25 times longer than incandescent light bulbs and up to 3 times longer than CFLs.
  • Start instantly; no warm-up time required.
  • Generate very little heat.

The Federal Trade Commission has designed a new lighting label to make it easier to compare light bulbs. The label provides information on lumens (brightness), estimated annual operating cost, how long the bulb should last and the light appearance or color of the bulb.

Lighting greatly affects the mood and style of your space. Energy-efficient lighting comes in a variety of shades. The color of light is measured on a scale referred to as Kelvin (K). The lower the K number, the more yellow a light appears. The higher the K number, the more white or blue the light appears

There are many different styles of LEDs. The graphic below suggests the best bulb for each lamp type.

This policy set energy-efficient standards for light bulbs. Under the new law, light bulbs need to use fewer watts (energy) for a similar lumen (brightness) output.

For example, when this law was written, a standard 60-watt incandescent light bulb provided up to 14 lumens per watt. An equivalent CFL provided up to 70 lumens per watt and an LED up to 100 lumens per watt.

Providing more efficient lighting options will make better use of our energy resources and lead to cost savings. The U.S. Department of Energy predicts that these standards will save U.S. households nearly $6 billion in energy costs in 2015 alone.

Most lamps are for livestock buildings. As new products become available we will add them to the store, so check back often.
