Electric Energy-Saving Tips
Use Energy Star labeled lighting fixtures.
Turn off the lights in any room you are not using.
Consider using high-intensity discharge (also called HID) or low-pressure sodium lights.
Install task lighting
Use dimmers, motion sensors, or occupancy sensors to automatically turn on and off lighting as needed and prevent energy waste.
Use compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) in place of comparable incandescent bulbs to save about 50% on your lighting costs. CFLs use only ¼ the energy and last up to 10 times longer.
Turn off decorative outdoor natural gas lamps.
Use light wall colors to minimize the need for artificial lighting.
