Take Action Towards a Sustainable Future
Believe it or not, twenty percent of residential electric bills are related to household lighting. By switching to a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL), you can save more than $30 over the life of the bulb.
- Use 75% less energy
- Last about 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs
- Cost little up front
- Provide a quick return on investment
If every home in America replaced just one incandescent light bulb with an ENERGY STAR qualified CFL, in one year it would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes. That would prevent the release of greenhouse gas emissions equal to that of about 800,000 cars.
