Boards could save money and energy by switching out all regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. See EFI.org for a good deal on packages of bulbs.
Also, consider changing your outdoor lighting. All night lighting at any outdoor location that is not the primary doorway can be changed to motion sensor activated lighting. Also consider using a shielded light fixture for better visibility and energy conservation. When the light source is visible, glare is produced.
