How much electricity can be saved by using CFL?
it can save 10% of per month by using cfl bulbs.
We have traveled a long journey along with the bulbs from incandescent bulbs to CFL and LED light bulbs Is it safe to go further in search of How to save electricity?
As you said all of us had a long experience with Incendescent lamp and CFLs, but know as the consumption of electricity has increased as compare to earlier times, so its our duty to save electricity. By using CFL & LED lights we can save a lot of electricity as compare to incandescent lamp. Because these light actually consumes less energy then incandescent or conventional lamps.
We always talk how to save electricity by using CFL or LED but why dont we consider the other appliances also which run on electricity like microwave refrigerator washing machine and geyser.?
In current practice we can not store electricity abundantly for long time (one can store small amount in charging batteries). Once electricity is produced in power station it flow from higher concentration (power station) to lower concentration (end user), if power produced more than the consumption of the end user then, there is the question of saving, but as it is not possible to store finally it is going to discharge. But fortunately in our…
It depends on the bulb's wattage (its actual wattage, not the incandescent equivalent) and the cost of electricity where you're using the bulb. For example, suppose you have a CFL that draws 14 watts and electricity in your area costs 12 cents per kilowatt-hour. Using very rough approximations, in one hour your bulb would use about 1/70 of a kWh (1000/14 = 71.3), so the bulb would cost about 1/6 of a cent (12/71) to…
