I've just replaced 99% of the CFL/halogen/incandescent bulbs in our home with LED equivalents and; out of curiosity; thought - what would our consumption be if every light was turned on [not inconceivable with 3 teenagers!] - pre LED I estimate approx 1.2kw, post LED 0.2kw - a saving of about 85% and no noticeable difference in light quality

Quite impressed - though I just really wanted rid of the awful CFL's

Some more details of what you replaced with what would be helpful. Types, prices, suppliers, colour-temps etc. And anything you thought worked particularly well or badly.

Well done for the project, though - this is what's needed in every house in the land.
