Con Edison is providing Food Banks in New York City and Westchester County with 200,000 high-efficiency lightbulbs for distribution to residential customers.

The light-emitting diode bulbs will save an estimated 7,100 megawatt hours of power per year.

That would prevent more than 5,000 tons of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere, the equivalent of taking 1,100 cars off the road.
