 To save you money and protect the planet, we’re giving away up to three, free LED lightbulbs at six Montgomery County libraries in celebration of Energy Action Month this October.

Get a free LED — when you bring your incandescent or compact fluorescent lightbulbs, we’ll exchange (up to 3) of them for LEDs. The ENERGY STAR®-certified LEDs we’re giving away offer a warm white light that’s equivalent to a 60-watt incandescent lightbulb.

Not only will you save money by getting free LEDs, but also you’ll pocket money from lower electric bills. You could cut your utility bill by at least $25 per year by replacing five traditional, incandescent bulbs with LEDs.

LED prices have declined 85 percent in recent years, and bulbs can be bought for as little as $2 to $5.

The giveaway is a partnership between Department of Environmental Protection’s Energy program, Pepco, and MCPL.
