Now, what is an investment? An investment is the allocation of money or some other resource (asset), in the expectation of some benefit in the future (return). In a recent cost analysis based on a price survey by the Consumer Federation of America, it was determined that the typical American family uses at least 20 indoor light bulbs throughout their home. Now let’s do a comparison of just one 60-watt incandescent,...

Did you know that NASA has been testing the use of LED lights on the International Space Station (ISS)? Well, they have. Starting back with ISS Expedition 18 in October of 2008, NASA started testing the use of a Solid-State Lighting Module within the spacecraft environment of the ISS. These tests and their results could benefit everyone, both in space and on earth.

The LED Global Market

The LED Global Market

Where does the United States rank when it comes to the LED lighting global market? Europe ranks first with 23%, China is second with 21%, and the U.S. ranks third with 19% of the market.

China’s lighting cost, on the other hand, is lower than in other parts of the world due mainly to them having the largest manufacturing base of LED lighting producers in the world. In the United States...
