375 100 watt are used at 40 hours per week (8*5)  cost is 375*100= 37500 watts per hour/ 1000= 37.5 kilo/hour for all lights then we multiply by 40 and get 1500 kiloswatts then multiply by cost 0.073 = 109.5\$

375 26 watt are used at 40 hours per week    cost is 375*26 = 9750 watts per hour /1000 =9.75 kilo/hour for all lights then multiply by 40 =390 * the cost 0.073 = 28.47\$ per week

next we subtract 109.5-28.47 and get 81.03\$ you are saving per week
