Lower Energy Costs & Carbon Footprint with an LED Conversion for your Louisville Outdoor Lighting System
I know what you’re thinking. If you’ve been on this Earth as long as I have, you probably remember some early LED lighting technology that created harsh bluish light. Some of the lights had to warm up to come on and then when they did the effect was startling – in a bad way. Today’s LED outdoor lighting has hit a new stride in advanced technology for creating gorgeous lighting while using 80% less energy than Halogen. Look at the image below – I bet you can’t tell the difference.
Same Great Look, Much Lower Energy Use
We can upgrade most Halogen outdoor lighting systems to today’s LED lamps. What are the benefits of a lighting upgrade? The biggest benefit of an LED upgrade is an immediate energy savings, every day, with no effort or change in lifestyle on your part. If you care about the environment but some of the conservation efforts are too much to realistically fit your lifestyle, this is a great way to do something to lower your carbon footprint. An average 15 light LED outdoor lighting system uses just a little more energy than a standard 60 Watt light bulb. The same Halogen system uses as much as 450 Watts. At 75 Watts, the LED outdoor lighting system is a clear winner on energy use.
Less Energy Use = Lower Electric Bill
There is a ton of math involved in checking out what your exact monetary savings will be each month. The electric company charges you per kilowatt-hour (KWH). One KWH is equal to using 1,000 Watts in an hour or a 100 Watt light for 10 hours. Using some average usage numbers, we can calculate the difference between running our 75 Watt LED outdoor lighting system and the standard 450 Watt Halogen outdoor lighting system.
*Using the current average cost of $.1091/KWH
As you can see in the chart above, the comparison for running a system for 6 hours a day for the year is a significant price difference. Add to your electrical savings the lack of lamp replacements as LED bulbs last for years, and you’ll be glad you chose Outdoor Lighting Perspectives to convert your outdoor lighting system to LED.
