Energy-Efficient Lighting

Start Saving with LEDs!

Did you know the average household spends 11% of its energy budget just on lighting? One of the fastest ways to save is by making the switch to ENERGY STAR® certified LED specialty light bulbs. They use up to 80% less energy and last up to 25 times longer than conventional incandescent lighting.

Ameren Illinois now offers discounts to its residential electric customers on LED specialty light bulbs through participating retailers.

It's easy to get started!

Step One: Plan

Take inventory of the light fixtures in your home you use the most, such as:

  • Kitchen ceiling light
  • Living or family room table and floor lamps
  • Outdoor porch or post lamps

Step Two: Purchase
