WHY LED?

LED LIGHTING IS A REVOLUTIONARY, COST-SAVING AND ENERGY-EFFICIENT SOLUTION

HOW DO LEDS SURPASS OTHER LIGHTING TECHNOLOGIES?

Let’s take a closer look at the top 5 reasons LED lighting clearly outshines its alternatives.

  • Efficiency

    LED lighting requires a substantially lower amount of energy to operate than any other lighting technologies while still generating a higher quality of light. As our society advances, it is increasing its energy consumption. In order to meet the increasing energy demands and reduce the necessity to build more nuclear plants it is imperative to make this change. The government is providing monetary incentives to businesses and other institutions who make the change to LED lighting. Big Shine Energy will guide you step by step through the incentive process.

  • Life Span

    When comparing the average life span of LED, conventional incandescent and CFL light bulbs, it is crystal clear why LED lighting is the best solution. An average CFL’s lifespan is approximately 8,000 hours, whereas incandescent light bulbs only emit light for about 1,200 hours. LED technology, on the other hand, has an average lifespan of an impressive 50,000 hours. Conventional light bulbs and tubes require regular maintenance and can cause high costs for facility maintenance and the probable loss of critical production/labor. LED bulbs offer substantially longer life, maintenance-free, superior lighting and guaranteed cost savings.

  • Reduced Bill

    LED lights use less power (watts) per unit of light (lumen) generated. Consequently, LEDs last significantly longer while also lowering your electricity bill. LEDs increase your lighting efficacy (lumens per watt) by 100-200 lm/wt. CFLs, in contrast, use about twice the wattage as LEDs. Incandescent light bulbs use around 10x as much power with only 18-20 lumens per watt. In a residential setting, this difference in lifespan and efficiency helps you to significantly reduce your electricity bill. In conclusion, an LED light bulb is almost 50 times more efficient in lifespan, and 70-80% more energy-efficient than a conventional incandescent option. Impressed yet? It gets better!

  • Non-Toxic

    Apart from the compelling differences in efficiency, lifespan, and electricity cost, LED lighting is also the greenest solution available on today’s market. LEDs in contrast to CFLs, do not contain highly toxic mercury, which is harmful not only to the environment but also to human being. LED lights are free of toxic materials and are 100% recyclable, helping you reduce your carbon footprint by up to 33%. The long operational life span means that one LED light bulb can save material and production of an equivalent 25 incandescent light bulbs. A big step towards a greener future! Most important for issues regarding global warming and environmental change, LED light bulbs release substantially less CO2, sulfur oxide and nuclear waste. Where 30 incandescent light bulbs release about 2500kg of these emissions a year, LEDs only produce about 200kg annually (92% less emissions). Taking into consideration the increasing threats of global warming and the effects of CO2 emissions on our planet and personal health, it goes without saying that LED bulbs are by far the greenest lighting solution available.

  • Flexible Colors

    LED lights can easily be combined in various shapes and designs in order to produce highly efficient solutions for residential, commercial, and commercial lighting. Individual LEDs can be dimmed and both light color and distribution can be dynamically controlled via timers, remote control, the internet, or your home WLAN. A well-designed LED illumination system can achieve amazing lighting effects that influence not only the eye but also the mood and mindset of human beings. LED mood illumination is already being used in airplanes to allow more natural sleep patterns for passengers, and in classrooms where the right lighting has proven to increase student’s learning aptitudes. As dynamically controlled LED Illumination continues to be adapted into our society, the standard of everyday life will continue to evolve.

THE WAY TO A BRIGHT GREEN FUTURE

When considering the benefits and comforts of LED technology, it is clear that with the efficiency, lifespan, and ecological factors mentioned; the advantages of LED technology reach far beyond any other lighting alternative. Being substantially more efficient, longer lasting, and emitting a higher quality of light; LEDs are taking the lead in lighting our world into a greener future.

“LED technology is substantially more efficient, longer lasting, and far more sustainable.”
