Why switch to LED?

LED technology has improved dramatically in recent years. The advantages of new LED lighting technology are well tested and beyond doubt.

Switching from conventional incandescent or compact fluorescent lighting to LED dramatically reduces energy use, and therefore cost, as well as improving environmental performance.

The benefits include:

  • Energy savings from 40-80%
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Extended lifetime – 50,000 hours before replacement
  • “Instant on” capability – no warm-up time
  • Improved light output in terms of lumens per Watt
  • Reduction in CO2 emissions
  • Rapid payback time, from as little as two years
  • No up-front investment necessary
