Lighting and Appliances

Save instantly on the purchase of energy efficient lighting.

Focus on Energy partners with retailers around Wisconsin to offer instant discounts on ENERGY STAR® qualified products in stores near you.

Instant Discounts on Clothes Washers 

The average American family washes about 300 loads of laundry each year. ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers use about 20% less energy and 35% less water than regular washers. They also have a greater tub capacity which means you can wash fewer loads to clean the same amount of laundry. 

  • Save $50.00 off select ENERGY STAR top load clothes washers at participating retailers across Wisconsin.

Instant Discounts on CFLs

Lighting accounts for about 20 percent of the average home's electric bill. Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) use up to 75 percent less energy and can last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

  • Up to $1.50 per ENERGY STAR qualified CFL

    Instantly receive your discount at the register, without completing or mailing any forms. In some cases, retailers may ask you to provide basic information, such as your name, the name of your utility, or the type of bulb purchased.

All CFLs contain about 5 milligrams of mercury per bulb, which is less than you find in an average watch battery. Though it’s an extremely small amount, these bulbs do need to be recycled properly. Also, if a CFL breaks, you should take special steps as advised by the EPA. Download this Fact Sheet to learn how to properly clean up and dispose of a broken CFL.
