Replacing incandescent light bulbs with LEDs is a simple, effective way to reduce energy usage in your home or business. For a limited time, residents of the Casco Bay islands of Peaks, Long, Chebeague, Cliff, and Great Diamond can take advantage of a special deal for certain screw-in and pin LED lightbulbs available from Gilman Electrical Supply in Portland. By ordering bulbs through this program, you can take advantage of wholesale pricing, existing Efficiency Maine markdowns, and additional markdowns offered by the Island Institute for residents of the year-round Casco Bay islands. 

To participate, simply fill out the order form, and mail it along with a check made out to the Island Institute for the full amount owed to:

Switching to LED lighting can help you save money. Replacing a 60 Watt incandescent bulb with a 9 Watt LED for $0.50 is an investment that pays itself back in just five weeks.
