How to save lighting your home

One of the easiest ways to save energy at home is installing more energy efficient light bulbs like light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. LEDs use nearly 75% less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs, and last more than 15 times longer.

Lighting can account for up to 20% of the average home’s electric usage. Over time, changing to LED bulbs can add up to major savings.
