HOW EFFICIENT ARE LED LIGHTINGS?
LEDs use about 85% less electricity than incandescent bulbs and as much as 50% less than fluorescent lighting. The amount saved with fluorescents will vary depending on whether you’re using a fluorescent tube or a compact fluorescent bulb (CFL). The efficiency of a light bulb is measured in lumens per watt and currently LED technology is providing higher lumens per watt than fluorescent, but is not practical for every application a fluorescent source is being used.
Benefits of LED Lightings
The U.S. Department of Energy sees LEDs as the lighting source with the greatest potential for the future. They predict that, with widespread adoption of LEDs, by 2025 the country will:
Lower electricity demands for lighting by 62%.
Reduce carbon emissions by 258 million metric tons.
Diminish amount of materials in landfills.
Prevent construction of 133 new power plants.
Save $280 billion.
Although LEDs aren’t practical for every application (yet!), they are certainly the lighting choice of the future and offer huge benefits, including energy savings & energy costs, for your facility and the country as a whole.
Green Energy Support, Inc. (GES) provides businesses with the opportunity to take advantage of utility rebates and incentives that ultimately lower energy consumption and limit greenhouse emissions, all while prioritizing customer satisfaction.
We make every effort to advocate an industry conscious of the environment through the implementation of green energy sources, as LED technology consumes less power per unit of light emitted, minimizing the impact of electrical pollution on the world.

If LEDs were rapidly adopted by the United States in the next 20 years we could eliminate almost 260 million metric tons of carbon emissions and avoid building over 130 new power plants.
