Light Bulb Exchange Programme Starts Today

May 1, 2019

The Department of Energy announced the official launch of the LED Exchange Programme, effective today [May 1].

A Government spokesperson said, “Beginning today and continuing as long as supplies last, members of the public are encouraged to bring one incandescent light bulb to participating retailers in exchange for one energy-efficient LED bulb, free of charge.

“After conducting research with local retailers, the Department of Energy found that a standard 60-Watt A19 bulb is the most popular choice among customers.

“A 60-Watt bulb generates approximately $46 per year if used for five hours each day. An LED light bulb equivalent will only generate around $6.90 per year. Switching to an LED bulb generates a savings of about 85% in energy usage annually.

“The Department of Energy and the Ministry of Home Affairs hopes that all residents will take advantage of the LED Exchange Programme to contribute to a greener, more energy-efficient Bermuda.

“Please see a list of participating vendors below:

  • ATS, Lovers Lane, Paget

  3. Nerd Life says:

    For ONE bulb…..LOL! Should have been at least a pack of 4 however this island is broke so not even sure how they are affording ONE.

    So free stuff is being given away & people are actually complaining that it’s not enough? This is a promotion to introduce those who have not made the switch to LED to have a free sample of what LED’s are like. That said read the promotion again & I am sure you can come up with something if you feel one isn’t enough but then that would be fraud…
