“At Avista, we are always looking for ways to help our customers save energy,” said Bruce Folsom, Avista’s director of energy efficiency. “Using CFLs means you don’t have to change light bulbs as often, saving time and lowering overall energy costs, plus they’re good for our environment.”
Lighting accounts for about a quarter of our nation’s energy consumption. CFLs use up to 75 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs, but provide the same amount of light. They are more efficient in their use of energy, turning more of their energy into light and less into heat, and can be used throughout a home in a variety of wattages. CFLs last up to seven times longer than an incandescent bulb (7,000 hours vs. 1,000 hours).
Information on energy efficiency rebates and incentives offered by Avista for residential, commercial and industrial customers is available www.everylittlebit.com, along with other energy-saving information and links to information on the Federal energy tax credits.
