    Two types of lightbulbs are offered, 65-watt-equivalent flood bulbs, and 60-watt-equivalent standard, or A19 style, bulbs. Both are warm white in output tone and can be used in enclosed fixtures. Energy consumption is between 8 and 9 watts each, and they last an estimated 25,000 hours, or about three years of continuous use.

    Each PSEG-L.I. customer can purchase up to two 10-packs; shipping is free on all orders. The limited-time offer will expire on Aug. 12 at 11:59 p.m., or until supplies run out. The cost per bulb is about half that usually charged at big-box stores for dimmable LED blubs.
