Energy Efficiency Lowers
Your Energy Costs
LED lighting uses only a fraction of the electricity that is needed to power traditional
High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps and have longer product life spans – 50,000 to 100,000 hours.
In comparison, incandescent lamps last for 1,000 hours, while compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) have a life span of 8,000 to 10,000 hours.
LEDs produce no UV rays, and are free of toxic mercury and lead.
WHY GO LED?
Based on the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) report, buildings consume approximately half (49%) of all energy used in the United States and nearly three quarters of all electricity.
Lighting fixtures of commercial buildings consume the most electricity, along with the energy consumed by heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
Energy efficient lighting upgrades represent the highest Return On Investment (ROI) of any single technology project, with an average ROI of 45 percent as stated by the EIA. These upgrades pay for themselves in as little as 2.2 years and the payback continues over the lifetime of the system through reduced energy and maintenance costs.
