Did You Know:

Artificial lighting consumes about 12% of a household’s electricity use. Use of new lighting technologies can reduce lighting energy use in homes by 50%–75%. You can reduce lighting energy use by selecting lighting and sources that use energy more efficiently, and by installing lighting controls.

By replacing the five most frequently used light fixtures in your home with ENERGY STAR qualified models, you can save more than $65 each year in energy costs. Light fixtures that have earned the ENERGY STAR combine quality and attractive design with the highest levels of energy efficiency available today. ENERGY STAR qualified lighting provides bright, warm light but uses about 75% less energy than standard lighting, produce 75 percent less heat, and lasts up to 10 times longer.

Changing the world for the better starts with simple actions. When you replace entire light fixtures in your home with ones that have earned the government’s ENERGY STAR, you help preserve energy resources and reduce the risks of global warming while saving money and time buying and changing lights in your home.
