Hawaii Energy Announces Free Led Bulb Promotion

For a limited time, Hawaii residents can trade-in inefficient bulbs at 18 participating Ace Hardware stores across O‘ahu, Maui and Hawaii Island

Honolulu, Hawaii – Hawaii Energy announced today a Free Bulb Swap promotion that allows Hawaii residents to trade-in their old, inefficient bulbs for LED lighting at participating HouseMart Ace Hardware stores on O‘ahu, Maui and Hawaii Island. Participants can exchange up to 30 incandescent or halogen bulbs for ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs, while supplies last.

“Hawaii Energy remains committed to helping all residents reduce their energy costs. Our partnership with HouseMart helps ensure that LED lighting can be affordable for everyone and made available to more families,” said Brian Kealoha, executive director of Hawaii Energy. “Switching to LEDs can reduce indoor home lighting costs by up to 90 percent, so we hope this makes it easier for residents to switch to energy-efficient products and start to enjoy a lower electricity bill quickly.”

For a limited time, participants can also purchase two-packs of energy-efficient A19 standard LED bulbs and G16.5 globe LED bulbs for only $1 each, normally $4.49 each. All LED products are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
