Who Left The Lights On? (An Infographic)

How many times have you left a room and forgotten to turn out the lights? How many times have your kids done it? Your partner? Your roommate?

According to a new survey from Lutron Electronics, about 90% of Americans admit that someone in their household has left the lights on by accident. Interestingly enough, this happens most often in the kitchen.

So, if most people believe that leaving the lights on in an empty room is the biggest waste of electricity, what can they do to stop it? Using an occupancy sensor to help control the lights might just be worth a try. The occupancy sensor will detect your presence to turn lights on when you enter a room, and off when you leave it.

Problem solved.

This infographic has made me curious…Who forgets to turn off the lights in your house? Where does it happen the most?
