Friday, October 28, 2016
WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) marks ENERGY STAR Day 2016 by calling on Americans to change out their inefficient light bulbs with ENERGY STAR certified LED bulbs. In collaboration with ENERGY STAR retail, manufacturer and utility partners, the goal is to change more than 300 million bulbs in one year. Collectively, a change-out of this magnitude would save Americans about $1.5 billion dollars in annual energy bills and prevent 17 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions.
