Lighting typically accounts for 15-20% of residential energy use. Newer lighting options are so much more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs, that often the first and most cost-effective solution is to simply swap the incandescent bulbs out all at once. In many cases the break-even point of re-lamping is well under one year.
At EDGE Energy, we treat each aspect of energy use as a system. Re-lamping may be an obvious solution, but we can look at the big picture. Where would dimmers be appropriate? What about motion sensor-activated lights? Or light sensing switches? Can more effective use of daylight cut your lighting needs?
