Today marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. We all know the significance of taking care of the planet, our communities, and one another, and EarthTronics is excited to offer a product that can offer all of that. Now in 2020, it’s common knowledge that LEDs are much better for the environment than other lighting options, but we figured we’d help remind you of the ways in which our LED lighting technology plays a part in reducing energy waste, caring for the environment, and being more sustainable overall.
LED lighting technology plays a part in reducing energy waste
A highly efficient lighting technology, LEDs are versatile in application and use at least 80% less energy than incandescent lighting. According to the US Department of Energy, widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in our country. By 2027, the use of LEDs could save about 348 TWh (terawatt-hours) when compared to no LED use at all.
These savings are equivalent to the annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants and represent a total savings of more than $30 billion! It’s empowering to know that one small change, like replacing a light bulb, could have such a major impact—especially when it can be so simple.
LEDs Provide Environmental Benefits, Plus Savings, Safety and Security!
- They’re brighter, providing better light for workspaces which can mean better safety and security
- They use less wattage, all while providing the same level of illumination of a higher wattage. We mentioned energy savings, right?
- They last longer than other fluorescent or incandescent bulbs; up to 10 years in a new fixture!
- They have no mercury content, reducing toxic chemicals deposited into landfills.
- They run cooler than other bulbs, reducing energy use and the demand on the grid.
- Many energy providers offer exceptional rebates when you retrofit buildings, facilities and homes with LED fixtures.
LED Lighting for Every Application
LED bulbs are highly efficient and cost effective, making them ideal for nearly any applications. They are commonly found in industrial settings, outdoor spaces, commercial areas, and residential areas. And with EarthTronics as your LED Supplier, retrofitting is a breeze. We have plug and play LED Bulb options that don’t require new fixtures, as well as a long list of LED fixtures created to make retrofitting simple. We’re constantly working to improve our products and technology while expanding our product line to make switching to LED bulbs as simple as possible.
