However a firm called Ecozone claim to offer a similar bulb to the traditional 60-watt one but using 75% less energy and it lasts up to 10,000 hours. According to the Energy Saving Trust these bulbs save £3 a year compared to traditional ones, if you put them in every light socket around the house it equates to about £55.
