LEDs are extremely energy efficient and consume  up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. Since LEDs use only a fraction of the energy of an incandescent light bulb there is a dramatic decrease in power costs. Also, money and energy is saved in maintenance and replacement costs due to the long LED lifespan. LEDs have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours

Advantages of LED technology.

  • Energy efficient – LED’s are now capable of outputting 135 lumens/watt
  • Long Lifetime – 50,000 hours or more if properly engineered
  • Rugged – LED’s are also called “Solid State Lighting (SSL) as they are made of solid material with no filament or tube or bulb to break
  • No warm-up period – LED’s light instantly – in nanoseconds
  • Not affected by cold temperatures – LED’s “like” low temperatures and will startup even in subzero weather
  • Directional – With LED’s you can direct the light where you want it, thus no light is wasted
  • Excellent Color Rendering – LED’s do not wash out colors like other light sources such as fluorescents, making them perfect for displays and retail applications
  • Environmentally friendly – LED’s contain no mercury or other hazardous substances
  • Controllable – LED’s can be controlled for brightness and color
  • Incentives – You may be eligible for cash incentives from BC Hydro for upgrading your facilities.
