Easiest way to save electricity

One of the simplest and cost effective ways to save electricity is to swap out incandescent lights with compact florescent light bulbs. These bulbs are up to four times more efficient than traditional bulbs. Since they are florecent they do not work with dimmers or 3-way lamp sockets, so use them where you can and where it makes sense. At my home, I like to leave a light on overnight, so now I run a compact florescent instead of a 75w indoor flood light. I am not sure how much money I actually save, but I can rest assured that I am not wasting electricity on a bulb that is less efficient.

With the rising cost of fuel, and the upcoming electrical company rate hikes don’t wait any longer to start cutting your home electricity usages. Install solar panels or low voltage lighting when possible.

You can find all sorts of eco-friendly products, including compact florescent lights, heated travel mug, outdoor solar lights, solar cell phone and iPod chargers, flexible solar panels, exciting unique gifts & gadgets.
