The government is set to encourage people to fit low-energy light bulbs as part of its Green Deal scheme to help people get cheap electricity.
According to the Independent, climate change minister Greg Barker is keen to highlight the benefits of LED lighting, which he claims offers a better light then traditional incandescent bulbs, was well as drawing less power.
"The great thing about LED is that it doesn't just save you money, but actually comes in several colours, moods," he said, adding they are "fun attractive products that people are going to want".
Recently, founder of Be Energy Smart Charles Dowson observed low-energy lighting is an affordable way to cut costs and offers a quick return on investment.
Mr Barker noted this is just one of several measures that people could install under the Green Deal that would improve the look of their home, as well as reduce their gas and electricity bills.
This could include recladding ugly abodes and fitting new doors and windows, which can help stop heat escaping and improve the aesthetics of a property, he said.
