Energy Efficiency

CFLs in Plain English

I just had two super-efficient compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs) burn out on me, which surprised me since they’re only about a year old. Then again, my husband does leave the bathroom light on a lot…. At any rate, the rest of my bulbs are still going strong, even after several years for most of them. Here’s a great video on CFL 101.

Tip of the hat to Dave over at e-Strategy blog.

Written By

I hail from Saint Paul, Minnesota, home to a region full of renewable energy potential and innovation. A public relations professional by day and blogger by night, I have a background in energy policy and communications. I'm particularly interested in the private sector's leadership and innovations in renewable energy - I cover this in my personal blog, Maria Energia. I enjoy traveling, reading, downhill skiing, scuba diving, and anything related to food (growing it, hunting it, cooking it, eating it). Fun fact: I make a 2-second appearance in An Inconvenient Truth (at the 2 minute mark, I'm the girl who is riveted.)
