How Did We Do This?
Interview with MidAmerican Energy
What are the most energy efficient light bulbs?
LED (Light Emitting Diode)
CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lights)
Why are they more energy efficient?
They require less wattage than incandescent bulbs and CFL bulbs
What are the differences between incandescent and energy saving lightbulbs?
Energy saving lightbulbs generate light by sending an electrical discharge through ionized gas
Incandescent lightbulbs generate light by heating the filament in the bulb
4. How much money on average can energy efficient bulbs save you?
Incandescent- $50.25 (monthly cost)
CFL- $11.73 (monthly cost)
LED- $7.97 (monthly cost)
CFL saves an average of $38.52 monthly
LED saves an average of $42.28 monthly
Energy efficient bulbs also last longer, therefore saving you money
5. How much light do energy efficient bulbs emit compared to incandescent bulbs?
Energy efficient bulbs emit approximately 5x the amount of light than incandescents
