When you total up all of the costs together, the numbers are staggering. In a groundbreaking study by Florida Atlantic University's physics department, researchers discovered that when you combine all residential, commercial, and municipal external lighting together, the U.S. spends about $11.6 billion annually. Of that figure, approximately 30% is what they call "wasted lighting" ($3,487,306,003)!
Of course, every improvement in energy efficiency helps. But for truly optimal savings, you must expand your thinking. Instead of focusing on improvements exclusively within the home, you should view your entire property as one energy-consuming unit. The lamp posts and lights in your garden, for example, are major electricity hogs that often get overlooked. Out-of-sight and out-of-mind, they're easy to forget - even by trained and licensed energy auditors. And yet, these very lights carry tremendous potential for long-term electricity bill reductions.
