Sometimes it is hard to image how making small scale changes can have more than a tiny impact in this big world. Rest assured you can make a difference.
SDG&E’s Manage, Act, Save Program can help you monitor your weekly usage, and measure how you are doing against other households that are similar to your own. This week’s tip:
How many efficient light bulbs does it take to change the world?
“If every American home replaced just one light bulb with one that has earned the ENERGY STAR rating, we would save enough energy to light 2 million homes for a year, save about $460 million in annual energy costs, and prevent 6 billion pounds of green house gas emissions per year – equivalent to the emissions from about 550,000 cars.”
Presumably these figures are based on replacing an incandescent bulb with an ENERGY STAR rated bulb.
Consider how many incandescent bulbs you may still have lingering in your home or your business. Change it out and you can save some money and help save the world.
