It has been reported that lighting accounts for approximately 12% of household electricity usage and 25% for commercial sectors.

By making smarter lighting choices and moving to more efficient technologies, residential and commercial properties could reduce the amount of energy they use for lighting by 50% or more.

As inefficient  incandescent lighting are being phased out for more efficient types of lighting - including compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), light emitting diodes (LEDs) and fluorescent lights - there are also other effective options to consider, such as utilising natural lighting.

Sunlight is perhaps the most inexpensive method of lighting a home or building during the day. It helps reduce carbon emissions and reduce electricity costs in the long term.
