LED lighting could reduce commercial greenhouse gas emissions

Posted on January 30, 2012 Category: LED Lighting Articles

LED lights are extremely efficient and long-lasting. A business can significantly reduce their carbon footprint by switching from a more traditional bulb such as incandescent to an LED bulb.  According to the Center on Globalization Governance and Competitiveness, LED lighting applied to commercial locations has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 110 million tons by 2030.

While LED lighting products currently vary greatly, businesses interested in making the change can profit financially from making the switch. The life of a high-powered white LED bulb is projected to be from 35,000 to 50,000 hours, reports National Geographic. In contrast, traditional fluorescent linear tube bulbs last between 20,000 to 30,000 hours. The long lasting solution can decrease lighting costs throughout the year and make a return on the investment.

At EnvironmentalLights.com we believe in sustainable lighting solutions that are energy-efficient and long-lasting, which can lower energy use and minimize environmental impact from manufacturing and waste.

LED lights provide the opportunity to reduce energy waste and decrease lighting waste. Therefore, potentially increasing lighting efficiency and lowering overhead costs.
