Come January 2014, the government has passed legislation that will ban traditional “energy hog” 40 and 60 watt incandescent bulbs. 

Now’s the time to switch to energy efficient alternatives, but when it comes to the home lighting aisle at the hardware store, where should homeowners start? 

Connecticut and Long Island utility companies are also offering significant rebates to homeowners who buy light bulbs that are energy-efficient and long-lasting – specifically LED bulbs from Cree at The Home Depot.  

LEDs have long been expensive, but Cree’s bulbs are the first the break the $10 barrier and rebates are available. The bulbs last up to 20 years.  The bulbs use 85% less energy than traditional bulbs.
