Taking care of the environment is a responsibility that everyone should feel accountable for. LED lighting provides many environmental advantages:

Energy Efficient

  • LED lights are up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights.
  • 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light and only 5% is wasted as heat.
  • This is compared to fluorescent lights which convert 95% of energy to heat and only 5% into light!
  • LED lights also draw much less power than traditional lighting; a typical 84 watt fluorescent can be replaced by a 36 watt LED to give the same level of light.
  • Less energy use reduces the demand from power plants and decreases greenhouse gas emissions.

No Toxic Elements:

  • LED lights contain no toxic elements.
  • LED lights avoid the cost and time implications required for compliant disposal – and helps to protect the environment from further toxic waste.

Less Lights Needed:

  • Less LED lights are needed to achieve the same level of brightness given off by fluorescents and incandescent lights.
  • Fewer lights will reduce energy consumption and will therefore be a benefit to the environment.
  • Life span:
  • A longer life span means lower carbon emissions.
  • LED Lights last up to six times longer than other types of lights, reducing the requirement for frequent replacements.
  • This results in using fewer lights and hence fewer resources are needed for manufacturing processes, packaging materials and transportation.
