Energy 101: Lighting Choices — and the Continuous Effort to End LightLitter: Lighting your household represents about 10% of your monthly energy bill. Using energy saving incandescent bulbs, or light emitting diodes (LED), or compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) not only provide you the same level of light that you’re used to, but they will use 75% less energy. If you change 15 old-style bulbs in your house to these energy saving bulbs, you would save around $50.00 a year. AIC has a wireless Bulit solution.
