It is possible to save the world from the comforts of your home. For starters, if every household in the United States replaced one incandescent bulb with a compact fluorescent bulb, we would have enough energy to light 3 million homes for a year.

At the same time, that would generate approximately $600 million in energy cost-savings each year, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 9 billion lbs.

Most of our energy supplies are consumed by the residential sector and in the United States alone, buildings account for 72 percent of the country’s total electricity consumption. Check out the following infographic and see how can we play a part in reducing the world’s energy consumption.
