Starting September 2, 2014 Residential and Small Business customers can take advantage of Spencerport Municipal Electric’s (SME) LED Light Bulb Initiative. The intent of the program is to provide Customers with the latest type of lighting technology.
Every SME residential Customer to will be allowed (two) free LED 10 watt dimmable light bulbs. The bulb replaces a typical 60 watt incandescent bulb and has a life span of 50,000 hours.

Customers can stop by the Village of Spencerport Office located at 27 West Ave to pick up their free bulbs.
