Long-lived and Energy-Efficient Lamps (DE-UZ 151)
Keep your eyes open when buying lamps: High-quality energy-saving household lamps
Compact fluorescent lamps - colloquially also called "energy-saving bulbs" - and LED lamps use far less electricity than incandescent lamps to produce the same light output. Thus, they help reduce the household lighting bill: at best by up to 80 percent. However, not all energy-saving lamps are equally good. Blue Angel eco-labelled lamps are high-quality products offering so many benefits (see above). Hence: Be smart about lighting.
