UVM Eco-Reps exchanged 500 CFL bulbs this Fall. This is one of our regular actions that has a relatively easy-to-measure impact.
According to our calculations for the incandescent bulbs we collected, this amounts to the university avoiding approximately:
- 21,000 kwh of electricity
- $2,500 in utility costs
- 7.85 MT of CO2e emissions
This is an annual activity for UVM Eco-Reps, and may involve exchanging a smaller number of more efficient LED bulbs for next year...
