The amount of wasted energy for lighting that few to no one utilizes in the wee hours of the night is staggering.

How much electricity is used for lighting in the United States?

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates that in 2018, the U.S. residential sector and the commercial sector used about 232 billion kilowatthours (kWh) of electricity for lighting. This was about 8% of the total electricity consumed by both of these sectors and about 6% of total U.S. electricity consumption.
