Lighting accounts for about 20% of annual household electricity bills, or approximately $200 per year. The higher the bulb wattage you use the more electricity that is needed to make it burn bright and more electricity used means higher energy costs for you. You can save money by switching to energy-efficient lighting. Generally, the most energy-efficient types of home lighting are CFLs and LEDs. Both provide high quality light, use less energy, and last longer than standard bulbs. Right now, you can save even more through Focus on Energy! Instant discounts are available at participating retailers for select lighting products, while supplies last. Call 800.762.7077 or visit focusonenergy.com to learn more.
