Households in Victoria may be interested to know about how Melbourne based company Brightgreen has been awarded the premier's top award for sustainability.

The innovative lighting organisation was recognised for its efforts in designing LED (light-emitting diode) lights which help consumers to reduce their power usage by 80 per cent.

This development may be worth noting if your household or business is looking for methods to reduce your electricity prices.

The company was awarded the Premier's Recognition Award at the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2012 on Tuesday (October 2).

Victorian premier Ted Baillieu said: "I congratulate Brightgreen and all other winners for their innovation and foresight in integrating sustainability into their organisations and communities.

"It's important that we recognise businesses and organisations that implement sustainability initiatives to protect the environment and enhance the economic wellbeing of Victoria."

The awards, which identify achievement in sustainability, have been running for a decade.

The premier added that the ceremony acknowledges leadership, innovation and achievement in businesses, government, the community, tertiary education and the environment.

In addition to the overall sustainability award, Brightgreen also took home the Products and Services Award for their light bulb design which reportedly lasts for 70,000 hours and can be recycled.
