  • So What’s Next for LED Lights?

    Ultra-efficient LED lights that have an electrical efficiency of over 100 percent…. does that sound like science fiction to you? How do lights that have an electrical efficiency of over 100 percent not break the law of thermodynamics? Ultra-efficient LED diode’s put out more than twice as much energy in photons as its fed in electrons by drawing in the heat energy from its surroundings. When the diode gets more than 100 percent electrically efficient it ...

  • Lighting the Future

    Living on Earth states, “Lighting accounts for twenty percent of all energy use in the US.” We rely on lighting more than we know and in order to reduce the amount of energy we use from lighting we need to invest in the future of LEDs. Currently incandescent bulbs waste 95% of energy flowing through them as heat. LED lights not only last longer but also don’t produce as much heat, which can cut cost ...

  • Light Emitting Diode (LED)

    LED lights have become the latest technology for energy efficient lighting. The term LED stands for “Light Emitting Diode”. LED lighting products use light emitting diodes to produce efficient light. An electrical current will pass through semiconductor material, which will light tiny sources called LEDs. There is no actual “white” LED light. In fact common LED colors are usually amber, red, green or blue. In order to get the “white” LED light you see in homes ...

  • Did you know?

    While energy efficiency and cost savings are the two biggest benefits to LED lights, there are many other overlooked benefits. Here are the top five overlooked benefits of LED lights: Did you know LED lights brighten up immediately when turned on? This can provide great benefits to projects such as traffic lights and light signals. LED lights can operate in extreme temperatures. Florescent lights can be effected by extremely cold temperatures however LED lights continue to operate at ...

  • It’s all about that tax credit

    While making the switch to LED lights can initially be expensive there are many programs out there to help with the costs. Federal tax credits are provided to encourage businesses to be more energy efficient. A federal tax credit reduces the amount of income tax you have to pay. Unlike a reduction a credit directly reduces the tax itself. The tax credit and federal incentives vary by each state. You can visit the Department of Energy’s ...
