New Minnesota App Available for LED Lights

LED bulbs

Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) –  Are you one of those making the conversion from old-fashioned lightbulbs to the newer energy-efficient lights but are confused when trying to decide which type to buy?  If so, help is now available through a free app.

It’s called the “Right Light App” and is now available, thanks to the Clean Energy Resource Teams and the University of Minnesota Extension office.

“We created the Right Light App after six years of educating Minnesotans about energy-efficient LED light bulbs,” said Dan Thiede, Communications Manager with the Clean Energy Resource Teams and the University of Minnesota Extension Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships. “The app helps people pick the perfect bulb when they’re at the store or shopping online, from bulb and fixture types to color and brightness suggestions.”

Thiede says the app can be used by individuals or groups that serve others with questions about lighting.

“It’s the kind of resource that utilities, retailers, and local governments can share with their communities and customers when they are approached with questions,” Thiede commented. “We created a paper Right Light Guide years ago that is used by over 80 utilities in Minnesota, and now this app adds a great interactive resource to that guide.”

The full suite of lighting resources from the Clean Energy Resource Teams can be accessed online at http://mncerts.org/lighting.

The announcement of the app comes during the annual “Be Bright” program offered by Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency. The Rochester-based power wholesaler has partnered with retailers in its member cities to offer LED light bulbs at a reduced rate.
