How 1000Bulbs.com is Reducing Energy Consumption in the U.S.
Changing your lighting to LED may seem like a small change, but small changes add up. As Earth Day approaches, 1000Bulbs.com is proud to look back on 2016 and see the impact our products have made on energy consumption for homeowners and businesses.
In 2016, 1000Bulbs.com sold over 2.9 million LED products, everything from 5 Watt LED A19 bulbs that replace 40-Watt incandescents to 35-Watt LED wall packs that replace 400 Watt metal halide fixtures. PLT 4 ft. LED tubes alone reduce energy consumption by 31.6 billion Watts per year.* That’s enough energy saved to power Dallas Cowboys' Stadium for an estimated 1055 games (about 66 regular seasons), about 139 years of free electricity for a mid-sized IHOP**, or 13 round trips to and from the future in Doc Brown's DeLorean.
1000Bulbs.com is also proud to provide the proprietary brand, PLT. Held to the same standards as more expensive brands, PLT products have developed a reputation for quality that has them flying off the shelves. As an added bonus, many of our PLT products are DLC 4.0 Listed, meaning they qualify for rebates from some energy providers. Of our top ten best-selling LED products in 2016, four of them were PLT, including our top selling antique bulb, wall packs, and T8 bulbs. Not only sold on the 1000Bulbs.com website, these products are also available on Amazon.com and Walmart.com alongside other top brands.
Will this be the year you reduce your monthly energy bill by switching to LED? 1000Bulbs.com has the products and the lighting know-how to help you make the world a greener place, including the inside of your wallet.
