LED Lightbulb bulk purchase.

We've now got some LED Bulbs! Call Peter on 0408 307730.

They're $15 each and are halogen downlight replacements, and in most cases will save about $30 per year each - that's right a 6-month payback!

So if you change 10 over you can save $300 per year, from a $150 outlay.

We only have 60 left so be quick!
