Green Tips
Use today's energy efficient bulbs. They come in many sizes and styles. Switch to fluorescent lights where you can. They produce four times the light per watt as ordinary bulbs and, even though fluorescent tubes cost more than incandescent bulbs, they last longer. Fluorescent bulbs can take more energy to turn on when you first flip the switch, but the energy savings outweigh the initial extra energy use -- especially when used in areas where lights are on for many hours per day.
