Advantages of LED Lighting
A standard lamp converts only 10% of the electricity used into light. LED lamps convert 85% of the electricity used into light.
LONGER LIFE SPAN
LED lamps have a life span up to 8 times longer than a standard lamp.
Most LED lights operate at low voltage and so are cool to the touch and much safer during installation and maintenance.
LED lamps are eco-friendly as they don’t contain mercury or other harmful gases. They don’t emit any harmful UV rays.
A 13 watt LED light emits 68% less CO2 than a standard 40 watt incandescent bulb running 10 hours a day.
The Evolution of the Lightbulb
Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
South Africa’s carbon footprint is way above the world average – a reflection both on the country’s heavy reliance on coal and on our high level of energy usage.
If the country were to meet the commitment made by cabinet to have greenhouse gas emissions decline between 2020 and 2025, it needs to support legally binding measures to do so, to put a price on carbon and to grow the use of renewable and alternative energy.
Therefore it goes without saying that South Africa and Africa in particular needs to follow the rest of the world in order to alleviate our already over-burdened energy supply.
Lighting can contribute to over 30% of a households total electricity bill. By replacing inefficient halogen and incandescent light globes with energy-efficient and cost-effective LED lighting, you will reduce your electricity bill and most importantly contribute to reducing the country’s carbon footprint.
