Savings with LED

LED-light-bulb-cost
Making the switch to cost-efficient, eco-friendly LED lighting is a small investment when compared to the savings you’ll enjoy for decades to come. But still, LED might seem costly at first. A good LED bulb for replacing a 60 watt incandescent bulb costs about $50. How long would it take to pay for one bulb and start saving?
Take the light at your front door, for example. If this is a 60 watt incandescent light bulb that’s on for 12 hours per night, that bulb costs about $32 per year to light (at the average U.S. electric utility rate of 12¢ per kWh). If that bulb were a 60 watt equivalent replacement LED bulb, it would cost about $4 per year to light for 12 hours per night. After about three years, the bulb would be paid for in full and you’d start saving $28 per year on a single bulb – for the next 20 or 30 years!
Don’t forget, you’d have to spent additional money on replacing the burned-out incandescent bulb dozens of times. Not to mention, who likes going to the store the buy light bulbs – and who likes changing light bulbs?
Over the life of a single LED bulb, you could save over $800 on electricity. And that’s just for one light bulb. For a home that has 35 light bulbs, you could save over $1,000 per year in electricity costs – or more than $35,000 on electricity before you need to buy another light bulb!
