Consider the Savings Using CFLs Will Bring
|Cost of bulb||$0.40||$2.40|
|Lifetime of bulb||8 months||7 years|
|Cost of energy to operate over lifetime of 1 CFL (based on $0.09/kWh)||$54.00||$13.50|
The changes you make in your lighting choices will also contribute to a changing planet. You help curb greenhouse gas emissions when you use CFLs. Every CFL can prevent more than 450 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions. Think of the impact South Dakotans can make if each one of us changes just one bulb!
