We’ve worked with Philips to choose the best-quality LED lighting for consumers and businesses, and saving energy in the home is a top priority for us. As Lux, the UK’s leading lighting magazine advises, people can reduce their lighting energy bills by a huge amount every year with LEDs.

It published an independent report recently showing that a typical home in the UK fitted with traditional lighting uses 2063.3kWh (kilowatt hours) a year in electricity. Fitting a typical home with LED lighting reduces electricity use to just 364.4kWh – saving £254.86 on bills.
