Home Lighting Audit from GE

GE’s Bringing Choices to Light curriculum includes one lesson in which students  take an inventory of the light bulbs inside and outside their homes. Using an inventory worksheet (see page 17 of this pdf), students can easily take inventory and then calculate  any cost-savings associated with switching any existing incandescent light bulbs with comparable wattage of CFLs.  For advanced inquiry, you could have students calculate cost savings associated with replacing bulbs with comparable wattage LED bulbs.

You can also direct your students to this quick CFL energy savings calculator that will calculate an estimated cost savings from switching any existing incandescent light bulbs with CFLs of comparable wattage.
