  • I will take a wild guess and say less. bulb either not in or burnt out. means electisity is not flowing to it.

  • It will use less electricity because it's the bulbs and their watts that draw the electricity.

  • Less would make sense to me, because if you put a dimmer bulb in then there would be less electricity used, so no bulb at all is just an extension of that. Final answer, but I wouldn't bet all of my winnings on it. *Smile.*
