6 Reasons why Exterior LED Lighting is Green
We have all seen bright exterior lighting burning all night long around building, parking areas, sport stadiums, many homes and along highways. For green minded people this is very concerning, especially when you consider that as it happens all over the planet, increasing amounts of carbon emissions enter our atmosphere and continue to heat our planet. The most frustrating part of this is that much of it is avoidable if we only use the modern technologies that are now available to us.
Here are 6 good reasons why Exterior LED Lighting is a greener technological option. If you know of any additional reasons why exterior LED lighting is green, please let me know and I will add it to this list.
ENERGY SAVINGS – an almost 90% reduction in lighting consumption compared to incandescents
EMISSION REDUCTIONS – as less electricity is produced
MANUFACTURE SAVINGS – less energy and materials are required to produce LEDs
SAFETY – LEDs do not contain hazardous materials like mercury
DURABILITY – LEDs can withstand harsh handling, temperatures and weather
LONG LIFE – as opposed to only months for alternatives, LEDs last for decades
