Did You Know?
Lighting accounts for 20-25% of all electricity used in United States
A standard 60 watt incandescent light bulb costing 50 cent to buy ,will use, on the average, $4.50 in electricity by the time it burns out!
By the time you have used 13 bulbs, you will have spent an average of $65 in bulb and electricity cost!
When we generate electricity, our power plants generate pollutants and nuclear waste. Over the 750 hour life of a standard 60 watt incandescent light bulb, it will contribute to our air pollution problems by adding 67 pounds of sulfur dioxide,112 grams of nitrogen oxides ,or 8 milligrams of plutonium waste.
Good Earth Lighting is committed to developing energy efficient lighting products as an alternative to inefficient ,energy wasting incandescent lighting. Our decorative line of ceiling fixtures, sconces and outdoor lanterns use compact fluorescent and /or circline technology. Compact fluorescent technology and bulbs are not new and have been used for years.
Good Earth makes many different styles and designs of fixtures, vanity fixtures, wall sconces, and outdoor fixtures. There’s something for everyone.
You should know that compact bulbs used in Good Earth fixtures run much cooler than ordinary incandescent bulbs. This means they will generate less heat in your home, placing less demand on your air conditioning and cooling needs.
Since compact fluorescent bulbs use less energy to operate, they place less demand on the power companies, and help reduce plant pollution and waste. A singe 13 watt Good Earth Lighting fixture over it’s 10,000 hour life can save the following when compared to an ordinary 60 watt incandescent fixture:
400 pounds of coal, 1200 pounds of greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming and …16 pounds of acid rain
As a result of this high efficiency, a Good Earth Lighting fixture can save you
|1 x 13 Watt Fixture
|2 x 13 Watt Fixture
|1 x 30 Watt Fisture
*Savings are computed for typical 10,000 hours of a 13 watt compact fluorescent bulb vs. a 60 watt incandescent bulb. For the computation, we’ve used a typical energy cost of 10 cents per kilowatt hour. Because energy costs across the country vary ,your actual saving may differ from those shown above. In addition ,because ordinary incandescent bulbs have a typical life of 750 hours ,you will save even more in bulb replacement costs
