Conserving Electricity

Posted: February 24, 2012 in Being Green, Green Technology

With some free time I’ve been swapping out all incandescent and fluorescent lights around the house with LED bulbs I find deals on.  So in order to show the significant reduction in costs associated in running these lights I picked up a cheap Kill A Watt electricity usage meter.  I then also picked up some $5 outlet timers from Belkin and a couple of generic auto on/off lights.  So it’s time for a showdown: Incandescent versus Fluorescent versus 2 kinds of LED (see slideshow) – all 60 watt equivalent light output.
