Step 1: Materials
a lamp with an incandescent.
your local PUD or energy supplier, got them and see if they do a program for energy saving, mine did and hey gave us 2 boxes of cfl's, in each box it had 2 smaller oxes with 6 cfl's in it! thats a total of 24 FREE cfls and as they burn out, they give you more!
Step 2: Unscrew the Old, Screw the New
Take out your old bulb, and screw in a nice new cfl!
Step 3: How Does This Help?
well CF's use less power than normal light bulbs, heres that math to prove it
64 Watts Incandesant
14 Watts CFL
50 Watts of saving!
Step 4: Savings!
I work art afurniture store, we leave lights on over night to show off lamps, when we switched to cfls we saved about $250 dollars a month!
at my house we saved about $100 a month!
Now thats some saving!
thats about half of my electricity bill!
