Weber State University’s sustainability team and partners are empowering Northern Utah residents with the resources to save energy and money, while reducing pollution on a community-wide scale

Community members can now exchange used incandescent and CFL bulbs for new, energy-efficient LED light bulbs, at no-cost. Households can exchange up to 15 bulbs for free through the Empower Northern Utah Light Bulb Exchange program, which runs from through (while supplies last).

LED bulbs use nearly 90% less energy than traditional bulbs and 15% less than CFL bulbs, while providing the same amount of light. Unlike CFL bulbs, LED bulbs contain no mercury. Upgrading light fixtures that are often used with LED light bulbs can save residents up to $12 a year, per bulb. Exchanging 15 bulbs could cut annual utility cost by more than $100.

Participating is easy

  1. Unscrew your inefficient incandescent or CFL bulbs.
  2. Place them in a bag and bring them to your exchange location of choice.
  3. Trade your old bulbs for new LED bulbs at no cost.
  4. Install your new bulbs, and start saving money!

Higher energy efficiency means less electricity pulled from the grid – which means less emissions from coal-fired power plants! This results in better air quality and a healthier climate.
