Sunbelt Going Green

Based on studies by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), here are som facts to help you choose LED’s:

LED’s save up to 90 percent of the electricity that is needed to power conventional painted or ceramic coated bulbs.

The low electricity use of LED’s means less carbon emissions, and manufacturing LED’s is more environmentally friendly.

LED’s are encased in hard-to-break plastic versus the more gragile glass of incandescent lights. Because the LED is electronic, it lasts up to 10 years.
