Reduce your artificial lighting

  • Light coloured rooms reflect natural light better, decreasing the need for artificial lighting
  • Natural light is the cheapest form of lighting
  • Design your lighting to your requirements. For example, consider task lighting

Increase the efficiency of your lighting

  • Consider upgrading to energy efficient lights, such as LEDs
  • Efficient LED lights are also cooler than fluorescent or halogen globes and can reduce air conditioning use. Win!
  • Using motion sensors/timers for outdoor security lights will save you remembering to turn them off
  • Relatively low cost solar lights can store electricity and light up your garden at night
