  • COLUMN: Energy saving tips

     Lighting is an easy place to start saving energy. Replacing your five most frequently used light fixtures or the bulbs in them with Energy Star qualified lights can save more than $65 a year in energy costs. Turning off just one 60- watt incandescent bulb that would otherwise burn eight hours a day can save about $15 per year.
