Remember, saving energy prevents pollution. Energy Star® qualified CFLs provide the same amount of light (lumens) as standard incandescent bulbs, but have lower wattage ratings. This means they use less energy and cause less pollution. If you are unfamiliar with the best CFL wattage to use for your lighting needs, always refer to the lumen, or light output on the product packaging as your guide. For example, most 60-watt incandescent bulbs provide around 800 lumens, so look forEnergy Star® qualified CFLs that provide 800 lumens or more.
