Lighting and Appliances
Energy used for lighting and appliances accounts for nearly half your utility bill, so there's a big opportunity to get savings by installing energy-efficient models that have earned the government's Energy Star. The energy star label can be found on more than 50 different types of products for your home, including refrigerators, dishwashers, clothes washers, and home electronics, as well as lighting fixtures and compact florescent bulbs. And buying products with this mark means your doing your part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
