Simple lighting changes can go a long way in saving money and energy at home. On average, ENERGY STAR® certified LED (light emitting diode) bulbs last at least 15 times longer than the equivalent incandescent bulbs and use 70 – 90% less energy.  ENERGY STAR certified light bulbs meet strict quality and efficiency standards that are tested by accredited labs and certified by a third party, providing quality and performance you expect.

Before you replace your next light bulb check out the ENERGY STAR website to find the information you need to make the best lighting choices.


Replacing a traditional incandescent bulb with an LED bulb can save homeowners both energy and replacement costs. The average home uses more than 50 light bulbs. Upgrading even one of them to an ENERGY STAR certified model could save you $30 to $80 over its lifetime, easily recouping the initial cost and more. To encourage New Hampshire residents to switch to ENERGY STAR certified lighting products, the NHSaves utilities work with many retailers and lighting manufacturers to help offset the cost of these purchases for our residential customers. Here are our current options:

  • For instant in-store discounts on qualifying ENERGY STAR certified LED bulbs, look for our NHSaves labels and/or coupons available at our participating retailer locations. Coupons must be redeemed at the time of purchase.  At some participating retailers the prices are marked down and no coupon is required.  Look for NHSaves information in the store lighting aisles, or check with the participating retailer as offers vary by retailer.  Minimum purchase prices and purchase limits apply.
  • For instant savings on online purchases, go to and click on “View Our Online Catalog”, or go directly to Instant rebates are applied to qualifying products as shown in the price. Purchase limits apply.

Installing efficient lighting technologies in your home mean lower operating costs for your budget, and you’ll be doing your part to help use our nation’s resources wisely.
