LED Lighting, the energy efficient choice for your business
These days the wise choice for your business is to convert to energy efficient lighting. With incentive programs from BC Hydro, you can take advantage of rebates and often financing that can make your transition to LED pay off right away.
Since 2000, the U.S. Department of Energy has invested with industry partners in research and development of solid-state lighting (SSL)—including both light-emitting diode (LED) and organic light emitting diode (OLED) technologies. Why such concentrated attention on SSL?
The answer is simple: because of SSL’s rapid ongoing improvements and superior energy-saving potential. It is estimated that switching to SSL could reduce national lighting energy use by 75 percent in 2035, saving 5.1 quadrillion Btus—nearly equal to the total annual energy consumed by 45 million homes.
In addition to energy savings, SSL presents a huge opportunity to improve the performance and value of lighting through enhanced controllability, new functionality, application-specific lighting performance, novel form factors, and targeted improved wellbeing and productivity.
