Energy consumption (Watts) per 1300 lumens
Lighting can take up to 10 per cent of your household electricity bill (and 18-40 per cent in commercial buildings). A simple way to save money on your electricity bill is to replace your lightbulbs with quality LED lightbulbs.
The average home now uses 36 per cent less electricity on lighting since 2009, according to the Australian Government’s Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) program. Light-emitting diodes, known as LED lightbulbs, are largely responsible for this figure as they are far more energy-efficient than other types of lightbulbs, making them both cheaper to run and more environmentally friendly. Licensed eletricians can help your household switch to LED lightbulbs.
