How much can efficient light bulbs really save you? Jeff’s Update

Today Stacy and I went to Weston, CT to perform 3 lighting upgrades. We changed 88 light bulbs resulting in these savings:

$718 annually
4,035 kWh reduced
3,243 lbs of CO2 reduced
16.5 Equivalent # of 200-Watt Solar PV Panels Installed on a Home

So let’s say solar is a respectable $6.00 per installed watt. That’s nearly 20 grand you wouldn’t have to put into solar panels just because you have reduced your demand. Think solar is still the way to go? Well it is! Just make your home as efficient as possible first!
