CFL's Pack Big Savings at University of Guelph

What better place to inculcate young people with the idea of saving energy than a university, and what a good example of the effectiveness of changing over to compact flourescents. At the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada, they changed all 6,600 bulbs in student residences to CFL's. Results: 810,000 kWH less consumption per year; $ 64,000 saved in power purchases; 751,000 kg of CO2 not put into the atmosphere. We like also how students voted to spend extra money on 100% wind power for their student-run cafeteria. Go Guelph! ::Sustainability at U of G
