with ENERGY STAR Rated Light Bulbs and Fixtures

Replacing incandescent lighting with energy-efficient lighting is one of the easiest things you can do to save electricity and money. Seattle City Light offers instant rebates on select ENERGY STAR compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), Light Emitting Diode bulbs (LEDs), fluorescent fixtures and LED recessed can fixtures through participating retailers.

ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs use up to 75% less electricity and last 6-10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. CFLs come in a variety of shapes, wattages, colors and features, and often cost less than $1 after City Light discounts.

Up to $10 Discount on LED Bulbs and Fixtures!
In addition to being highly efficient, LED light bulbs last as long as 25 years and have exceptional dimming capability. LEDs bulbs and fixtures are becoming increasingly affordable; City Light rebates make it even easier to purchase long-lasting, efficient, high quality LED lighting for your home.

Whether you choose CFLs or LEDs, you'll want to choose the bulb that provides the right amount of light for your needs. Always check the lighting facts label on the packaging to determine the light output (lumens), wattage and color.

How to Find Discounted LED and CFL Lighting You don't have to fill out forms or lick stamps to take advantage of our lighting rebates. Seattle City Light has agreements with participating retailers to pay instant rebates on ENERGY STAR lighting products. The price you see on the shelf is the final price you pay at the register, and includes City Light's rebate.

CFL recycling
Because CFLs contain small amounts of mercury, they must be disposed of and recycled at a local collection site and not thrown in the trash. There are many convenient locations that recycle CFLs for free, including Bartell Drugs, Home Depot, Lowes, McLendon Hardware and SCL's North and South Service Centers.
