    No. But heating and cooling a home is at least a quarter of the average energy bill, appliance use that much or more (running your fridge, washing machine, dishwasher). Lighting is rarely much energy use unless you're running a greenhouse or have almost no other appliances.

    Upgrading incandescent bulbs to LED saves around 80% of the energy, while upgrading fluorescent lighting to LED saves between 30 and 40%. The thing is... lighting is not that much of an expense in homes: If lighting is 10% of your bill and you reduce the consumption by 80%, your bill only drops by 8%.

    However, commercial and industrial locations that use lighting for long hours can see significant savings with a lighting upgrade.

    No, I have not, and the reason is simple. It was never the light bulb that were using up all of the energy to begin with. It's what Tamara said in an earlier answer.
