Glossary of Green Terms




Compact fluorescent lamps combine the energy efficiency of fluorescent lighting with the convenience and popularity of incandescent lamps. CFLs can replace incandescents that are roughly three-to-four times their wattage, saving up to 75 percent of the initial lighting energy. Although CFLs cost 3-10 times times more than comparable incandescent bulbs, they last 6-15 times as long (6,000-15,000 hours).
