Free LED Lightbulbs! No, Really...

To save you money and protect the planet, Fairfax County is giving away up to five, free LED lightbulbs at six Fairfax County libraries in April and May.

Everyone can get one free LED and if you bring in up to four of your incandescent or compact fluorescent lightbulbs, they’ll exchange them for LEDs. The ENERGY STAR®-certified LEDs being given away offer a warm white light that’s equivalent to a 60-watt incandescent lightbulb.

Not only will you save money by getting free LEDs, but also you’ll pocket money from lower electric bills. You could cut your utility bill by at least $25 per year by replacing five traditional, incandescent bulbs with LEDs.

LED prices have declined 85 percent in recent years, and bulbs can be bought for as little as $2 to $5.

The giveaway is a partnership between Energy Action Fairfax, a county program to help residents become energy efficient, and the library.
