Advances in Compact Fluorescents Offer Unprecedented Savings

Experienced in the newest green lighting techniques, Regency Technologies helps companies and individuals to lower their energy bills, while reducing their impact on the environment. Regency Technologies is particularly eager to help clients leverage advances in compact fluorescent light bulbs and develop personalized energy strategies that can save money and energy.

Unlike incandescent bulbs, which waste as much as 90 percent of the energy they use by turning it into heat, compact fluorescent technology takes advantage of chemical reactions to create clear, consistent light, while using far fewer natural resources. The US government’s Energy Star program calculates that compact fluorescents produce 75 percent less heat than incandescent, while simultaneously consuming 75 percent less energy. Further, the bulbs last up to ten times longer than their filament-based predecessors.

As lighting accounts for approximately one fifth of a typical household’s budget, this giant leap in efficiency can make a real impact on a family’s bottom line. In fact, a single compact fluorescent bulb will save its owner an average of $30 over the course of its life, and help them lessen their impact on the environment.
