With more than 7.6 billion people in the world, according to World Bank, the Earth’s resources are more strained than ever. With a large portion of the world’s population driving cars, using electronics, and using energy from lights, a vast amount of carbon is constantly being released into the atmosphere.
It’s unlikely that many of us would be able to completely give up cars, electronics, and lights. However, buying LED lights instead of fluorescent lights is a good way to reduce your carbon footprint, doing your part to help protect the environment. Also, since LED lights save energy, they will save your pocketbook as well.
How do LEDs save energy?
According to a research article by Sedigheh Moghavvemil, Noor Ismawati Jaafar, Ainin Sulaiman, and Farzana Parveen Tajudeen, LED bulbs take in 50% less power, and therefore need less watts, than traditional fluorescent lights.
For example, you can replace a 400-watt metal halide lighting fixture with one of our 150-watt or 100-watt UFO High Bay lights.
LED lights save energy while having long lifespans, because they last five or more times longer than fluorescent lights. Our lights last for 50,000 hours, while fluorescent lights usually only last for around 10,000 hours. Also, LED lights produce more light and less heat than other types of lights. LED fixtures do not need an initial spike of energy for heating a filament or enclosed gas before illumination. Therefore, LED lights do not end up wasting large amounts of input energy in the form of unwanted heat, making them an energy-saving alternative to conventional fixtures.
How do LEDs help the environment?
Since LED lights save energy, the environment greatly benefits. LED lights release less greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and they cut down on the amount of electricity that power plants generate for homes and businesses.
Additionally, unlike most conventional lighting fixtures, LED lighting fixtures are free from toxins, such as mercury. LED lights also do not produce harmful ultraviolet (UV) or infrared (IR) rays. All of our lighting fixtures are Restriction of the use of Hazardous Substance (RoHS) certified, meaning they don’t contain any hazardous materials.
How does this help me?
In addition to providing you with high-quality light, LED lights require little to no maintenance due to their durability and long life. As a result, you save money that you would have spent on maintenance costs or replacing lights. Our LED lights are manufactured with high-quality equipment and have an industrial-grade build.
Also, our LED lights are DesignLights Consortium (DLC) approved. This means you may be eligible to receive rebates from your electric company after purchasing our lights, meaning that you would get some of the money back that you spent on the lights.
Should I go solar?
You will already be doing the environment a great favor by purchasing and using LED lights for the inside and/or outside of your residential or commercial space, but you can always choose to get solar LED lights for outside. Solar LED lights drastically reduce electric bills because they only use the sun for power. We offer LED solar street lights, LED solar flood lights, LED solar batten lights, and LED solar wall pack lights. Check out this blog post to learn more about solar LED lights.
Your future is bright with LED lights
LED lights use less energy, have longer lifespans, are aesthetically pleasing, and do not generate unwanted heat. Additionally, they reduce greenhouse gases and are free from toxins, and you will save a bunch of your money. Do your part to help the environment and save energy by purchasing LED lights today.
