Change the World. Start with ENERGY STAR.

EPA and DOE Announce ENERGY STAR Change a Light Day

Wednesday, October 5, 2005

EPA and DOE, together with more than half of US Governors, declared October 5th ENERGY STAR Change a Light Day, and encouraged every American to change a light in their home to one that is more energy efficient. Lighting accounts for 20 percent of a home’s electricity costs. ENERGY STAR qualified bulbs reduce household energy bills because they use one-third the energy of traditional lighting and last up to 10 times longer. This small step can make a big difference for our nation’s energy resources and environment.
