October kicks off National ENERGY STAR Change A Light Campaign

Wednesday, October 4, 2006

Americans are being asked to take one small step that will protect the environment, save energy, and save money. Americans are encouraged to replace one light in their home with one that has earned the government’s ENERGY STAR. ENERGY STAR qualified bulbs and fixtures use one-third the energy of traditional models, last up to 10 times longer and reduce utility costs. In fact, consumers can save up to $30 in utility costs over the lifetime of one bulb. Replacing the most frequently used lights at home will yield the most savings.
