(PRWEB UK) 1 February 2013
As we approach the 4th anniversary of the world’s most ambitious LED street light conversion project, it has been reported that more than 80% of the fixtures have now been completed. When the switchover was first planned, in February 2009, it was estimated that the LED fixtures would save about 40% in electricity; however the actual savings appear to be closer to 63%. Furthermore, when the refit is completed, the electricity savings should reach $7.5million (approximately £4.77million).
The team at Simple Lighting co. specialise in all areas of LED lighting and are dedicated to educating customers on the benefits of the energy saving devices. A representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the matter.
“It is no surprise that the city of Los Angeles has been able to make such considerable savings. One of the reasons people turn to LED lights to save money is because they last so much longer. As there is no filament to burn out, LED light bulbs can survive around 11 years at full strength. They’re also considerably more energy efficient, losing only around 20% of their energy to heat loss (compared to 80% of an incandescent bulb).
“At Simple Lighting co. we stock a wide range of LED products, including LED light bulbs, LED strips and LED tape but to name a few and we’re always introducing new lines.”
