LED Lighting Manufacturing: Better for the Planet

You probably already know that LED lighting is better for the environment than traditional compact fluorescent bulbs and incandescent bulbs.

Did you know that the act of manufacturing LED lighting itself is also better for the environment?

LED bulbs consume less power per unit (lumen) of light emitted. This reduces greenhouse emissions from power plants, and carbon dioxide emissions for LEDs are also low. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “lighting accounts for a fifth of the energy consumption in a U.S. household.”
In addition:

  • LEDs generate less heat during use, so cooling costs for the average consumer are lower
  • LED lights do not contain hazardous mercury, like compact fluorescent bulbs do
  • Longer lifespan of LEDs means less production, packaging, shipping costs, transportation, and disposal
