Thank you to everyone who participated in our concert. We raised a final total of $330 to purchase 280 CFLs and with the Home Depot and NSTAR contributions of 60 and 50 CFLs, respectively, we presented a total of 390 bulbs to the Senior Center today. Here is a photo of Ben presenting the first few packs.

Why Are We Donating Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs)?

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

The calculations in the links below show that compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), cost less overall, last longer, and do less damage to the environment.  You can display our incandescent and CFL comparison as web page or download the Excel spreadsheet and see what happens if you change the assumptions.

Projected savings from use of CFLs by Sudbury senior citizens

The dark blue numbers indicate how much carbon moves between reservoirs each year. The sediments, as defined in this diagram, do not include the ~70 million GtC of carbonate rock and kerogen.

Ben Warwick, a Sudbury middle school student, has organized and is playing in a benefit concert aimed at raising money to purchase compact fluorescent light bulbs for Sudbury senior citizens. He was inspired by memories of his positive experience to the Bridges program organized jointly by his elementary school, Haynes, and Sudbury Seniors Center and his desire to help the environment.

Ben will play ‘cello, with Helen Kim on piano, Joel Dawson on violin and viola, Stephen Senturia on clarinet, and Wayne Hall on piano.

Admission is free with a suggested donation of $5 per person or $10 for a family, and the entire proceeds will go to purchase compact fluorescent light bulbs for seniors in Sudbury.
