In addition to providing information about the benefits of LED lightbulbs, participants are eligible to receive up to five free LEDs per household. The first LED is complimentary. The next four are available if at least four incandescent or compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are brought in to exchange. All CFLs will be safely recycled at the county's I-66 Transfer Station.
Last year, 8,000 LEDs were distributed to approximately 1,600 people at the exchanges. Based on an average home’s lighting consumption, these LEDs resulted in nearly 200,000 kWh and $22,000 saved each year. These savings are equivalent to 280,000 pounds of carbon dioxide not being release into the atmosphere – the same as taking 28 passenger vehicles off the road.
The 2019 LED Exchange Schedule is below. For more information visit the LED Exchange webpage.
