Lights blazing away? This is a great time of the year to save money and reduce your personal carbon footprint by switching to LED light bulbs. Even if you’ve been changing over to LEDs, take an inventory to see which bulbs you still need to replace. Then go straight to your favorite hardware store to take advantage of prices that are subsidized by Consumers Energy. They are available in the full color temperature range from warm to daylight, and a variety of sizes. Ask a clerk to help you.
