Choose the right light for the job.
Inefficient general service incandescent light bulbs were phased out in 2014. But how do you choose among halogen incandescents, CFLs or LED lighting? This lighting comparison guide from the Natural Resources Defense Council can help. For most situations LEDs are the best option. They provide the most energy savings - up to 85% less - and last longer, too*.
They are tested to meet strict requirements and guarantee high quality. You can find all the bulbs you’ll need (along with great deals and instant rebates) at the PGE Marketplace.
Get motion detectors for outdoor lights.
Not only will you save energy, you’ll scare off the raccoons.
Install photo sensors.
If you leave your porch light on all night for safety, a photo sensor will automatically shut it off when the sun comes up and turn it on with the sun goes down. One less thing to worry about.
