Energy Efficient Lighting
What are LEDs? LEDs, or light–emitting diodes, are semiconductor devices that produce visible light when an electrical current passed through them. LEDs are a type of Solid State Lighting (SSL), as are organic light–emitting diodes (OLEDs) and light–emitting polymers (LEPs).
LED Lighting
Basics of LED Lighting The useful life of LED lighting products is defined differently than that of other light sources, such as incandescent or CFL. This is because LEDs typically do not “burn out” or fail. Instead, they experience lumen depreciation, where the amount of light produced decreases and light color appearance can shift over time. Instead of basing the useful life of an LED product on the time it takes for 50% of a large group of lamps to burn out (as is the case with traditional sources), LED product “lifetime” is set based on a prediction of when the light output decreases 30 percent.

The most obvious benefit of CFL and LED light bulbs is that they require significantly less energy to operate than regular incandescent bulbs. Here's a look at exactly how energy-efficient lighting saves you money – while also saving the planet. Efficiency CFLs are four times more efficient than an incandescent bulb, and they can last up to 10,000 hours -- that's 10 times longer than an incandescent. LED bulbs earn even better efficiency marks: They can last up to 100,000 hours, which means you could leave them on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for more than 11 years. Plus, using LEDs reduces your electric bill by 90 percent.  (The actual lifetime of an energy-efficient light bulb depends on the particular brand and individual usage patterns.) Lower Greenhouse Emissions For each incandescent bulb you replace with an energy-efficient light bulb, you reduce CO2 emissions by half a ton. If every American switched just one bulb, it would prevent the emission of greenhouse gases equivalent to that which comes from nearly 800,000 cars on the road. Electricity Savings Although energy-efficient light bulbs cost more to purchase then incandescent bulbs, they offer significant savings over their lifetime since they utilize less energy and last longer. Versatility Energy-efficient light bubs can be used to replace almost any incandescent bulb. There are now even CFLs that work with dimmer switchers and in 3-way lamps. Durability LEDs stand up particularly well to stress from bumping and jarring. Since they do not have a filament, LED light bulbs don't break as easily as incandescent bulbs.
