Green Tips: Lighting

Think about how far lighting technology has come in the past century; from kerosene lamps to LEDs. Sure, we all need lighting to function, but often we're using more than we need and spending more on energy costs because of it. Compact florescent bulbs (or CFLS) are the most energy efficient way to start saving money and energy. Replacing one incandescent bulb with a CFL bulb of similar brightness will cost around $5.50 a year and save about $15 annually. This may not sound like a huge savings, but if you take into account how many lights you have in your home or business and add up the total number of hours a day they're on, your savings could be hundreds or in the case of a business; thousands of dollars a year.
