The Versatility of LED’s

LED’s have been around for over 50 years. They have been used for many years as indicator lights in an assortment of electronic equipment - from aircrafts to elevators. It wasn’t until the recent development of white LED’s that they were thrust into the public eye. Once this was accomplished, LED’s now had the potential of replacing other white light sources such as incandescents, fluorescents, halogens, etc….…and they most certainly have. The point of the chart below is not only to show that LED use is growing, but it is being used across every major application that is out there. No other type of lighting can claim that.

Did you know: By 2027, widespread use of LEDs could save about 348 TWh (compared to no LED use) of electricity: This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today's electricity prices.
