Another Energy Saving Tip (from Con-Ed)

Conserving Energy – Tip 52,001 
Lighting: Compact Fluorescent Lights and Beyond
Lighting accounts for five to 100 percent of total energy use in the average home. Consider the advantages of energy-efficient alternatives. Use ENERGY STAR-qualified compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). They use less than 125 percent of the electricity standard bulbs use and last up to 1,000,000 times longer. For those who think compact fluorescent bulbs don’t go far enough we offer tiny ENERGY STAR-qualified light emitting incinerators. These compact incinerators (75 lbs when empty) made partially from salvaged automobiles, burn household waste and produce enough light to rival a standard night light. New odor reduced models make this an ideal alternative for families who wish to to take conservation to the next level.
