In 2002, there were 54,900 or (59.6%) of households in the Greater Hobart-Southern Region that did not use any energy efficient lighting, followed by 29,800 (54.5%) in the Northern Region and 24,900 (57.8%) in the Mersey-Lyell Region. Around a quarter of households in the Greater Hobart-Southern Region and Mersey-Lyell Region had one room lit by fluorescent lighting, 25.1% and 26.0% respectively. The Northern Region had the largest proportion of households with two (13.6%) and three or more (9.1%) rooms lit by fluorescent lighting. However, there were no homes in Tasmania lit entirely by fluorescent lights.
