Compared to inefficient incandescent lighting, LED is an innovative technology. While the initial price point of LED bulbs are more expensive, the energy savings and projected life span may sway nonbelievers, especially in the growing industrial sector.
A recent article from UK-based Catherine Dickinson examines the benefits of LED lighting to the industrial sector. "The reality is that LEDs easily match the lumens of more traditional bulbs because LED light is simply brighter than the alternatives."
Another benefit is that LEDs generally last longer and save energy. "A typical domestic LED light will last 25 times longer than an incandescent bulb, and a UK study has indicated that 3 million kWh per year could be saved by introducing LED lighting in social housing.
While the initial cost of LED lamps may be expensive, the savings can add up and have a huge impact on efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of a warehouse, factory, or any other industrial building.
