Lighting Facts:

Lighting accounts for 20% (1/5) of the average home's electric bills.                                                     

The average U.S. household has more than 40 sockets for lights in their home. If even five incadescent light bulbs that burn three hours a day are replaced with ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs, the average savings could be $225 in electricity over the lifetime of the CFLs.
