Abby’s Blog 22: Kids Helping the Earth – Dimming

Dimming my light saves energy. A lot of energy in fact. If you have a dimmer in your room, (I have one on my ceiling fan),you can control how high or low my lights go. I learned at school that if I dim my lights by 25%, I increase my energy savings by 20 percent; if I dim them by half, I can increase my energy savings by40 percent! Dimming a light 50% makes a lightbulbs last  more than twice as long!

Learning ways to save energy is really fun!
