Lighting contributes about 25% to the average building’s electricity costs. For commercial buildings, this number can be as high as 40%. In today’s climate of soaring electricity costs, finding energy-efficient alternatives is no longer solely about adopting environmentally-friendly energy solutions, there’s a very real financial benefit in doing so.
Light-Emitting Diodes or “LEDs” are semi-conductor lights which differ from traditional lighting technologies, such as incandescent halogen, metal halide, which primarily use heat to generate light. Lighting is the most effective way to reduce energy consumption. LED technology is already producing up to160lm/w, which is almost twice as efficient as its closest competitors.
LED’s are not only energy-efficient, but also versatile in providing the correct light quality and creating the right ambiance. Aside from using approximately 85% less energy than incandescent lamps, LED’s last up to five times longer than CFL’s (Compact Fluorescent Lamps), which last about 6 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
Many businesses are now moving to LED lighting not only to reduce electricity costs but also to reduce their carbon footprint. Faircity Hotel Group has reduced energy consumption from 195.199MWh to 25.632MWh, per month throughout 2015, and have reduced their carbon emission from 193.247 to 25.376 tons per month and saved approximately 232.307 kilolitres of water per month which would have been lost to the electricity producing process.
