Compact Fluorescent Bulbs

At GreenFair, we anticipate giving away 1,000 compact fluorescent bulbs over 2 days.

I was wondering how much energy would be saved if the bulbs were used just 4 hours a day

Here is the skinny

6.57 million KWH saved
13,000,000 pounds of carbon dioxide removed
It would light 619 homes or a town of 1500
The equivalent of removing 1300 cars off the road or not burning 29 carloads of coal

Just from 1,000 bulbs
