Green Light New Orleans Energy

What is a CFL (compact fluorescent light bulb)?

  • Energy Star qualified CFLs produce about 75 percent less heat and can cut additional energy costs associated with home cooling. *

  • CFLs provide the same amount of light (lumens) as standard incandescent bulbs, but have lower wattage ratings. This means they use less energy and cause less pollution. If you are unfamiliar with the best CFL wattage to use for your lighting needs, always refer to the lumen, or light output on the product packaging as your guide. For example, most 60-watt incandescents provide around 800 lumens.
