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 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 light bulbs through participating retailers.
