Save Energy Activity 3 January
This month we have a very easy activity for you!
1. Armed with a notepad and pencil, go around the whole house and count all the lightbulbs.
2. As you go, note down whether or not the lightbulb is an energy-saving lightbulb or not.
3. Now work out what % of energy saving bulbs you have in relation to your total light bulbs
4. Check your answer here:
Less than 50% – Room for improvement! Next time you replace a lightbulb, use an energy saving one. You will start to see the difference over time by having less lightbulbs to replace, never mind feeling good about saving energy!
Between 50% and 75% – You are doing well but maybe could do a little better. How about trying to replace some more to feel even better 🙂
Over 75% – great stuff! You are not only helping save electricity but you are saving money as well. It's estimated that over its lifetime an energy saving light bulb can save around €80 just by replacing a 100-watt incandescent with a 20-watt energy efficient light bulb.
Email your final result with your name, address, phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org for your chance to win a set of energy saving lightbulbs!
