Environmental Stewardship

There are lots of advantages to upgrading your business’ lighting with LED retrofits; one is the planet. LEDs have significantly reduced environmental impact.

More than 70% of the electricity produced in the U.S. comes from power plants that burn fossil fuels, that creating green house gasses and contribute to climate change. Studies show that energy needs will continue to increase. By 2030, world energy demands will rise by more than 35% as developing nations modernize.

Reduce your business’ carbon footprint and increase light levels and your bottom line with LED lighting.

How New Technology Compares to Conventional Lighting  
LED Lighting is Energy Efficient
LED lights are 75% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light and only 5% is wasted as heat. Less energy use reduces the demand from power plants and decreases greenhouse gas emissions.

LEDs Don’t Contain Toxic Elements
Most offices currently use fluorescent strip lights that contain noxious chemicals like mercury. These chemicals contaminate the environment so disposal has to be arranged through a registered waste carrier. Switching to LED avoids the cost and time required for compliant disposal – and helps to protect the environment from further toxic waste.

LEDs Have Long Lives
LED lights last up to 6 times longer than other types of lights, ending frequent replacements, and requiring fewer resources for manufacturing, packaging materials and transportation.
