how your savings are calculated

step 1 determine the bulb wattage at percentage dimmed with number of bulbs used

15 watts x 50% dimmed = 7.5 watts per bulb

7.5 watts x 6 bulbs = 45 watts

step 2 determine total power saved on hours dimmed

45 watts x 4 hours = 180 Wh daily savings

180 Wh / 1000 watts per kW = 0.18 kWh daily savings

step 3 determine energy savings

0.18 kWh daily savings x 365 days per year = 65.7 kWh yearly savings

65.7 kWh yearly savings x 25 year life span = 1642.5 kWh lifetime savings

step 4 determine money savings

0.18 kWh daily savings x $0.118 per kWh = $0.021 daily savings

65.7 kWh yearly savings x $0.118 per kWh = $7.75 yearly savings

1642.5 kWh lifetime savings x $0.118 per kWh = $193.82 lifetime savings
