We all share a responsibility for energy efficiency wherever and whenever we can. What better way to begin than simply replacing the light bulbs in your own home? Using compact fluorescent lamps is one small change we can all make to save electricity and save money at the same time.
A compact fluorescent lamp, or CFL, is designed to fit in a standard residential socket replacing an incandescent bulb. While they cost a bit more than a standard bulb, real savings are realized over the life of the CFL, which will last up to 10 times longer and use 75 percent less energy.
