BRIGHTEN UP YOUR LIGHT The smallest things can add up to a real difference. We encourage you to change out the light fixtures or bulbs at home that you use most with compact fluorescent lightbulbs.If every American home changed out just 5 high-use light fixtures or the bulbs in them with ones that have earned the ENERGY STAR, each family would save more than $60 every year in energy costs, and together we'd keep more than one trillion pounds of greenhouse gases out of our air – equal to the emissions of 8 million cars. That's a $6 billion energy savings for Americans, equivalent to the annual output of more than 21 power plants. CHANGE ALL YOUR LIGHTBULBS and cut down two thirds of your energy usage. GET ONE NOW!
