How Much Energy Does it Take to Light a Lightbulb?
Did you know it takes 714 pounds of burned coal to power one, yes just one light bulb for one year? And solar power? That takes 8 days 18 hours 14 minutes 24 seconds. Ecology’s Paul Sidlo illustrates a fascinating comparison of multiple sources of energy and what it takes to bring us light. Remember to turn off your lights when you don’t need them. It will reduce your carbon footprint and save you money.
