Compact Fluorescent Bulbs

Here's a powerful statistic for you from energystar.gov

"If every American home replaced just one light bulb with an ENERGY STAR qualified bulb, we would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes for a year, more than $600 million in annual energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of more than 800,000 cars.

Wow, right? What if we switched out all our lightbulbs? I have 26 in my small house alone!

Buy some compact fluorescent bulbs from Go Green Utilities for as little as $1.49 each. Sure they're a little more expensive than your standard bulb, but the impact is huge, and they last (almost) forever!

This is a great tip-- We do use several florescents at out house- And I have lived there 4 years-- never had to change them.
