Facts about the sculpture

 

Made up of 1,000 x 100W light bulb

 

Making the switch to Halogen lamps gives the same light and has the same look but saves up to 30% on your energy bill.

Making the switch to the next generation CFL lamps gives an equivalent light and saves up to 80% on your energy bill.

 

Key facts:

If you changed every light bulb on the sculpture to Halogen then:

 

·         You would save over €9,200* over the lifetime of the lamps

·         You would save over 30.25 metric tonnes of Co2 from entering the atmosphere.

 

It would take over 695 trees to absorb the CO2 savings generated in one year.

The savings over the lifetime of the CFLs would make over 2,300,000 cups of tea or would toast 2,555,555 slices of bread.

 

 

If you changed every light bulb on the sculpture to CFL then:

·         You would save over 526 metric tonnes of Co2 from entering the atmosphere.

 

It would take over 2,416 trees to absorb the CO2 savings generated in one year.

The savings over the lifetime of the CFLs would make over 40,000,000 cups of tea or would toast 44,444,444 slices of bread.
