Project Lightbulb makes home visits to select low and moderate income Baltimore City communities to provide residents with free supplies and information that they will need to increase home energy efficiency. In each home, AmeriCorps members will install up to 15 CFL bulbs, 2 low flow faucet aerators, 1 low flow shower head, 1 insulating hot water heater wrap and up to 6 feet of accompanying hot water pipe insulation, and 1 CO/Smoke Detector. Project Lightbulb has served over 3,000 Baltimore City households. According to energy comparisons from BGE, a Project Lightbulb visit results in an average monthly electricity savings of 53 kWh per home (approximately $90 each year).
