I'm glad to see schwegler going environmentally friendly in fundraiser for PTA. The article said "According to Westar's Web site, replacing a 60-watt incandescent bulb with a 15-watt compact fluorescent would save $4.60 a year." I feel that statement could be misleading for the individual that doesn't understand CFL's(Compact Fluorescent Light's). I think that statement might make people think they have to do with less light. When actually the 15-watt CFL's are equivalent to the 60-watt incandescent light bulbs for light output. Thus using less power but not compromising amount of light.
