How do LED Bulbs help you save on your power bill?

LED Lighting

The light-emitting diode (LED) is one of today's most energy-efficient and rapidly-developing lighting technologies. Quality LED light bulbs last longer, are more durable, and offer comparable or better light quality than other types of lighting.

LEDs are a better value for the money than incandescent and halogen light bulbs and can be used in the majority of existing light bulb fittings. LEDs use about 75% less energy than halogen light bulbs and last 5 to 10 times longer, greatly reducing replacement costs and the number of light bulbs ending up in landfills.
Considering the Incandescent lightbulb was invented over 100 years ago, it makes sense that they are a lesser technology compared to LED. What doesn't make sense is how many people still use them! Yes, Incandescent is a cheap light bulb—but only upfront. The cost per year is much higher than LED bulbs and have to be replaced every year compared to between 10-13 years for LED bulbs.
Widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States. By 2027, the widespread use of LEDs could save about 348 TWh (compared to no LED use) of electricity: This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today's electricity prices.
