LED vs. Nuclear Plants - what's your choice?

The Time has Come - LED Retrofits

The following key points are from the Forbes article "Can LED Bulbs Make Nuclear Plants Obsolete?"

  • Nuclear power represents about 19% of the power available to the grid.  Lighting represents about 19% of the consumption - U.S. and international.
  • The Department of Energy (DOE) estimates LED lighting is on track to reduce the power for lighting in the U.S. by 46%.
  • By 2030, the annual electrical savings is estimated at 300 terawatt-hours or about fifty 1,000-megawatt power plants. (source DOE)
  • The cost of LED lights has decreased nearly 50%.
  • Commercial lighting consumes half of power used for lighting in the U.S. grid.
  • Use of LED lights will grow from 10 to 45% by 2016 and to 70% by 2016.
  • One of the biggest complaints - companies who make their living replacing lamps with a short life cycle will turn off their lights - the party will be over.

The article cites reputable sources to explain the time has come for a LED retrofit revolution. The pricing is such that commercial and industrial businesses can expect investment grade returns on the lighting investment to turn their business #Green.  The industry has grown, matured, and is poised to become a ubiquitous factor in the reduction of electrical consumption worldwide.  But for commercial business, the best news is the lights make your products "pop", and it's the only #Green change you will make that customers will really notice.
