It depends on the bulb. A 25 watt bulb uses 25 watts, a 40 watt uses 40 watts, a 60 watt bulb uses 60 watts, a 75 watt bulb uses 75 watts, a 100 watt bulb uses 100 watts, all the way up to a 500 watt bulb. Incandescent bulbs are about to cease to exist, so this answer is only good through the fall.
