Lighten Up

Switching from incandescent to compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) is easy, affordable, and can cut costs right off the bat. CFLs use 75 percent less energy, saving up to $200 for every five bulbs replaced, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Plus, lighting expenses make up as much as 50 percent of the average commercial building's energy bill. So simply turning off lights and switching to lower-wattage bulbs can make a huge difference.
