*Based on 3 hours use per day. Some LED and CFL replacement  bulbs may provide less light output (lumens) than incandescent. See product pages for specifications.

Let’s take a look at a 60-watt replacement incandescent bulb. The energy consumption to use a bulb like this would cost about $90 over the course of 10 years. For an LED, running over the course of 10 years the actual cost would be only $18 to operate. Take a look at the table below for a breakdown.
