Before you choose your light fixtures, take advantage of natural light by designing your kitchen with lots of ENERGY STAR ® windows. A good way to cut down on energy costs is to place workstations like your prep and cleaning areas and cooking islands underneath or near windows. When you choose your lighting, choose fixtures that are energy-efficient (ENERGY STAR ® approved), use dimmers, motion sensors and timers. Always use fluorescent light bulbs, because they use about 70% less electricity and last about 10 times longer than an incandescent bulb.
