I decided to join the One Billion Bulbs CFL-awareness campaign after reading about it on Instapundit. I’ve been replacing my incandescents with the N:Vision bulbs that Popular Mechanics recently gave a good review. I think they give good light, and at 14 watts versus 60 they save a few bucks on the electric bill. Now I need to find some CFLs with a candelabra base so I can finish replacing bulbs. The local hardware stores didn’t have any.

I didn’t know they even made candelabra base CFLs. I just ordered some.
I’m also in the process of getting my house converted. One other upside: CFLs put out less heat, which saves on my A/C-related energy bill. Double bonus.
Only wish the three-way ones weren’t so expensive… but I guess I can just suck it up and buy a 150W-equiv and deal with the 3 clicks to turn it off.
