They're Super Efficient
Today’s LED bulbs can be six to seven times more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lights
They Have A Long Life
LED bulbs can have a useful life of 25,000 hours or more; that's more than three years if run 24/7.
They Don't Waste Energy
Unlike incandescent bulbs -- which release 90 percent of their energy as heat - LEDs use energy far more efficiently with little wasted heat.
They Have Multiple Uses
From traffic lights to TVs, LEDs are used in a wide range of applications because of their unique characteristics.
They're Environmentally Friendly
A recent Energy Department study determined that LEDs have a much smaller environmental impact than incandescent bulbs.
LED Research Is Ongoing
Since the Energy Department started funding solid-state lighting R&D in 2000, these projects have received 58 patents.
By 2030, it's estimated that LEDs will account for 75 percent of all lighting sales.
They Will Save You Money
Switching entirely to LED lights over the next two decades could save the U.S. $250 billion in energy costs.
