Before our move, I learned a thing or two from my good ole’ Georgia Power bill….Georgia Power was joining with ENERGY STAR to celebrate the national “Change a Light, Change the World” campaign and encouraged us all to make energy-efficient changes in our homes. The pledge and ideas made a lot of sense. See what you think.
By changing at least one standard incandescent light bulb to an energy-efficient ENERGY STAR-qualified CFL, you can save more than $30 over the life of the bulb. CFLs use 75 % less energy and lasts up to 10 times longer than standard incandescent light bulbs.
Taking the pledge is simple. You can:
1. Change a standard incandescent light bulb to an efficient CFL.
2. Set a programmable thermostat.
3. Recycle your old refrigerator.
4. Or make sure your home is well-insulated.
These are just a few of many options!
And remember: CFL recycling bins can be found at Home Depot stores throughout the state of GA. Check the internet for a site near your state or county.

Together, we can make a difference, one light at a time….wow. That does sound idealistic, doesn’t it? I mean, seriously.
