Did you know that only 10 percent of the energy used by an incandescent light bulb produces light? The rest is given off as heat. According to Efficiency Vermont, if you replace 25 percent of your light bulbs with fluorescents, you can save about 50 percent on your lighting bill.
Let's face it, we all want to be more energy efficient. It makes sense as we strive to reduce are carbon footprint, but it makes economical sense as well. But turning out lights or computers when they're not in use isn't enough. Installing and using energy efficient solutions for your electrical needs is easy and everyone benefits.
Choosing the right light bulb is just one simple way to use green alternatives in your home, office or business. We work with Efficiency Vermont and Renewable Energy Vermont to discover ways for you to LOWER your energy bills, search for rebates you may qualify for, purchase energy efficient equipment, and then install it for you so that it makes both environmental and economic sense.
