Fall just got a whole lot brighter with LED lighting rebates from BC Hydro

VANCOUVER – With the days getting shorter, the lights are staying on longer. That’s why for a limited time, BC Hydro is offering customers instant rebates on select energy-efficient LED bulbs and lighting fixtures. These products use at least 75 per cent less energy and can last up to 25 years.

Lighting can account for 15 per cent of a household’s electricity use. The average family home has over 35 light bulbs – and more than half of those bulbs are inefficient incandescent or halogen bulbs. Making small changes, such as switching out the inefficient bulbs in the living room to ENERGY STAR LEDs, could save a household up to $20 each year.

Until October 27, BC Hydro is offering 15 per cent off select ENERGY STAR LED bulbs and $5 off select ENERGY STAR LED fixtures at participating retailers across the province, including:

  • Canadian Tire
  • London Drugs
  • Lowes
  • The Home Depot
  • RONA
  • Costco
  • Home Hardware

In the past year, more than 825,516 ENERGY STAR LED bulbs were purchased through BC Hydro rebates.

BC Hydro is also offering customers the chance to win one of three energy-saving prizes in the month of October. Prizes include a Samsung Family Hub smart fridge with a Wi-Fi touch screen, a Nest thermostat package and a Philips Hue lighting package.
