Lighting uses seven to 10 percent of the total energy
consumed in a home. There are a number of ways that
you can reduce your electric energy consumption from
1. Turn off lights when you don’t need them.
2. Use dimmers.
3. Use photoelectric lighting controls such as motion
or occupancy sensors or timers to turn outdoor
lighting on and off automatically.
4. Use the more efficient PAR bulbs, especially for
task and accent lighting. For example, a 50-watt
PAR30 bulb produces more than three times more
light than a 65-watt BR30 bulb.
5. Use energy-saving LED or fluorescent bulbs
wherever possible. They produce significantly
more light for every watt consumed compared to
incandescent sources. Also, these new types of LED
and fluorescent bulbs have excellent color qualities
that equal that of incandescent
6. Look for products that carry the
ENERGY STAR® symbol.
