Commercial LED Lighting
The light-emitting diode (LED) is one of today’s most energy-efficient and rapidly-developing lighting technologies. Quality LED lighting lasts longer, is more durable, and offers better light quality than other types of lighting.
LED lighting is a highly energy-efficient technology and has the potential to fundamentally change the future of lighting in the U.S. Commercial LED Lighting — especially Design Lights Consortium listed products — use at least 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer than incandescent, fluorescent, or HID lighting.
Widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the U.S. By 2027, widespread use of LED lighting could save about 348 TWh (compared to no LED use) of electricity. This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today’s electricity prices.
LED lighting fixtures are recognized as maintenance-free products. LED fixtures are now rated up to 100,000 hours of use, which is over 11 years at 24 hours a day.
In comparison, HID and fluorescent lighting technology historically reaches its end of effective use at 18 months.
LED lighting virtually eliminates the cost of replacement bulbs, as well as typical maintenance labor and equipment costs for such replacement.
LED lighting is currently available in a wide variety of commercial and industrial products, and the list is growing every year.
The rapid development of LED lighting technology leads to more products and improved manufacturing efficiency, which also results in lower prices.
Below are some of the most common types of LED products:
- Petroleum C-Store Lighting
- Exterior Lighting
- Industrial Lighting
- Office Lighting
- Parking Garage Lighting
