Benefits of Energy Efficient Lighting

Energy efficient lights have the capability to use less energy to produce the same amount of light output, with the same quality and performance, as traditional lighting sources. Recent technological developments have advanced the energy efficiency abilities of light bulbs by 30%-60% which means lower utility bills and environmental effects. Using less energy reduces emissions of carbon dioxide, air-borne mercury, and other harmful pollutants from power plants that burn fewer fossil fuels to meet the lower energy demand. Lamps with longer life will require fewer replacements, reducing the demand for raw materials and lowering recycling costs.
