(PRWEB UK) 5 February 2013
It has been reported that 28,000 street lights in Plymouth are to be replaced by energy-saving LEDs as part of a £13million energy saving project. It has been estimated that the transition should save an average of £1.5 million a year over the next 20 years. Electricity generating solar panels will also be fitted in the roofs of 19 city owned buildings as part of the move to reduce Plymouth’s carbon footprint.
As one of the leading providers of LED tape lighting, the team at Simple Lighting co. are well aware of the economic advantages of LED lights and are pleased to see more towns and cities adopting the approach. A representative from the firm explains what makes the bulbs more energy efficient.
“Because there is no filament to burn out, LED light bulbs can last twice as long as typical fluorescent bulbs and twenty times as long as incandescent light bulbs. Another reason they are so energy efficient is because they only lose 20% of their energy to heat loss, compared to 80% of normal bulbs!”
The team at Simple Lighting are looking forward to following the progress of this story.
