Age Concern: Free LED Light Bulbs Giveaway

June 18, 2024 | 3 Comments

Age Concern Bermuda will distribute free LED light bulbs to residents aged 50 and over from June 24th to June 26th.

A spokesperson said, “Last year in May of 2023, Age Concern partnered with The Department of Energy to distribute over 500 LED light bulbs to Bermuda’s ageing population. Since then, we have had many requests to host a second giveaway of light bulbs.

“In an effort to alleviate the burden felt by Bermuda’s older adults, Age Concern Bermuda is delighted to announce a special giveback from the generosity of The Department of Energy again to distribute free LED light bulbs to residents aged 50 and over. This giveaway will take place at Age Concern Bermuda’s head office located at 24 Admiralty Lane, Pembroke on the following dates and times:

  • Monday, June 24th: 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
  • Tuesday, June 25th: 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
  • Wednesday, June 26th: 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM

“Over the past year, Age Concern has provided approximately $10,000 in hardship assistance for BELCO bills. The initiative aims to promote energy efficiency and support our older population by providing LED light bulbs, which are known for their long-lasting and energy-saving benefits. We aim to assist families in Bermuda to lower their electricity bill. This effort is part of Age Concern Bermuda’s ongoing commitment to enhance the quality of life for seniors on the island.

“This giveaway is open for those in the community aged 50 and over while supplies last.

“We would like to thank The Department of Energy for supplying Age Concern with these LED light bulbs to supply the ageing population.”

    The photo is not an LED bulb.
    And to everyone who received LED bulbs, you are welcome because mass purchasing LED bulbs by the Government was my idea.

    Still waiting for the Government to mass purchase timers for hot water heaters and negotiate with licensed electricians for a standard installation price. We shall see what happens as the election approaches.

    I guess the Government is saving the mass purchase of solar panels for last.

      “negotiate with licensed electricians”

      Do we have “licensed electricians” in Bermuda? Who is the licencing body?

    There is a guy on Court Street who knows a guy who knows a guy who licenses electricians. Walk down Court Street and ask. People there are very friendly and helpful. And the Big Guy gets a cut if the fee.
