What are the benefits of switching over to CFLs or LEDs?

CFLs and LEDs are energy-efficient light bulbs with several benefits.

CFLs last up to ten times longer than incandescent bulbs and use about 75% less energy. For example, a 15-watt CFL provides the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent.

LEDs use 70-90 percent less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs and last around 25 times longer.
