Removing those bulbs and replacing them with energy-saving bulbs can help you save money on your utility bill because the energy bulbs use less than half the amount of current that the old model bulbs utilized. You may have noticed that a single yellow bulb has a power rating of 100 Watts, whereas most energy-saving bulbs have a power rating of 8 Watts. The distinction is obvious.
