Compact fluorescent light bulbs are more energy efficient than incandescant lights.
Save the world, one light bulb at a time
See the light. This month, the "Change a Light, Change the World" event challenges you to sign a pledge to help save the world by switching to compact fluorescent light bulbs, or CFLs.
As part of National Energy Awareness Month, the Girls Scouts of Hawaii, City Mill and Hawaiian Electric combine efforts to enlist public support for switching more households to energy-efficient bulbs.
"CFLs use up to 75 percent less energy and last 10 times longer than a standard incandescent light," stated Derrick Sonoda of Hawaiian Electric. The bulbs now come in a variety of shapes and styles for indoor and outdoor use and enclosed fixtures.
The Girl Scouts will be at these City Mill locations from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday to collect signatures and distribute information on the benefits of CFLs: Honolulu, Kaneohe, Waipahu, Pearl City, Kaimuki, Hawaii Kai, Mililani and Waianae.
