Yes, and they provide huge benefits. The most common halogen MR-16 bulb is a 50 watt lamp that operates off a 12 volt transformer.

These lamps can be replaced with LED MR-16 lamps that consume on average only about 10 watts and provide similar light output. When replacing halogen, choose an LED MR-16 lamp that is 3000K (color temperature) which is the color temperature of most standard halogen lamps.
