Efficient Lighting and Controls
Save money and time by replacing old incandescent (and yes, even CFL) bulbs with more efficient light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. ENERGY STAR® rated LEDs are sold at your local hardware, do-it-yourself, discount, and lighting design stores located in Fort Collins, Longmont, and Loveland, Colorado. The Efficiency Works program offers in-store instant rebates on specialty LED bulbs that are Energy Star certified. Click here for a list of participating retailers. Discounted bulbs and controls vary from store to store.
To maximize your savings, use controls (i.e. a dimmer switch or occupancy sensor) with your newly installed LEDs. Efficiency Works offers in-store instant rebates for qualified lighting controls too.
Refrigerator and Freezer Recycling
That old refrigerator or freezer in the garage may be costing you more than you think. So, why not get paid to save energy? Efficiency Works, along with our municipal partners, offer FREE refrigerator and freezer recycling and on top of that we’ll give you a $35 rebate.

Efficiency Works partners with ARCA Recycling to ensure recycling complies with federal, state, and local regulations. Water lines must be removed before pick up.
Smart or learning thermostats offer many benefits to homeowners, such as, saving money on utility bills by reducing heating and cooling costs by an average of 23 percent. With this savings alone, a properly installed and used smart thermostat could pay for itself within the first year. To make the purchase even more cost effective, Efficiency Works is now offering a $75 rebate for Energy Star certified smart/learning thermostats on Nest.com and Lowes.com
