According to the ACEEE (American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy), more than 30% of electrical consumption can be attributed to lighting. In fact, lighting throughout the US is responsible for around 20% of all of the electricity that we use.
One of the best ways that we can reduce this number is replacing antiquated lighting systems that consume more energy than they should need to.

LEDs use around 2 to 10 watts of electricity, while standard bulbs use 60 watts or more.
