Batteries + Bulbs Energy Saving Lighting Program

Batteries Plus Bulbs has made switching out high energy consuming incandescent/halogen light bulbs easier than ever with our energy saving lighting assessments and in-store special promotions!

We understand that lighting is critical to any home or office space and we have the tools to match the look of your existing lighting. We can assist with improvements to your lighting by helping you understand the wide variety of options available.  We can also provide a preview of how much money will be saved on your energy bill by making the switch to energy efficient bulbs.

Batteries Plus Bulbs also offers energy saving lighting assessments for your business as part of our commercial program. Because it is our commitment to help the local community save money by using less energy, we offer this service free to our business customers. Simply contact the local Batteries Plus Bulbs store near you and schedule an appointment with our helpful sales staff at your convenience. You can find the closest store by entering your zip code into our store locator at www.batteriesplus.com or by calling 1(800)MrStart /1(800)677-8278. (In Charlottesville, you can find us at 1401 Emmett St N right across from Bodo’s.)

Right now until the end of September we are offering an $8 off mail in rebate on select LED light bulbs for up to 15 per household. Starting in October, the mail in rebate will include $5- $10 off select brands of LEDs.  When you visit our store in Cville please be sure to mention you were referred by LEAP and you then qualify for 5% off your light bulb purchases of $100 or more.

Need a place to recycle your old light bulbs that you’re replacing? Not a problem! Batteries Plus Bulbs has a recycling program in place to recycle light bulbs that is a great service for the environment. Some fees do apply with recycling. Please contact our store for further details on that service.

Our overall goal at Batteries Plus Bulbs is to educate our customers with expert advice while assisting with replacements. We encourage our customers to ask questions and want our customers to understand the product they are purchasing. Thank you for your interest in using energy efficient lighting and we look forward to serving you at our store here in Charlottesville!
