New efficiency standards mean we're changing the way we light our world for the better.
Understand your options.
- Lighting choices are changing between 2012 and 2014 in favor of options that use less energy.
Between 2012 and 2014, standard 40- and 100-watt incandescent light bulbs must use 30% less energy to meet minimum efficient standards. What does it all mean?
GE energy smart® CFLs are a common energy-efficient replacement option. With GE energy smart® bright from the start™ bulbs, there's even a CFL that achieves instant brightness the moment you flip the switch.

► GE Energy Smart CFL vs standard incandescent bulb
GE energy-efficient soft white offer the closest alternative to traditional incandescent bulbs.
GE energy smart® LEDs provide a highly energy-efficient and long-lasting lighting solution.
* Based on three (3) hours use per day.
These bulbs use less energy but some provide less brightness. See package for details.
According to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, lighting eats up to 20% of the average household energy bill. That means changing a light could save us $40 billion in energy from 2012 to 2030*.
