Compact fluorescent lights screw into standard sockets and use approximately ¼ the energy of incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer. Over their life, each bulb will save an average of $45 per year on an energy bill. LED lamps are the newest addition to the list of energy efficient light sources. They last 40,000 to 10,000 hours depending on color.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Alternatives to incandescent lighting lower costs, and are much more energy efficient.
For New Orleans
A typical house in New Orleans has 30 bulbs and would see an expected cost savings of $1,340 if they switched every bulb in the house.
