EnvironFocus ‘Move to LED’ (M to L)
EnvironFocus ‘Move to LED’ (M to L) is an initiative to move communities to a
safer and cleaner lighting option that is better for the environment and for the people. In Canada, we are doing this alongside the Ontario Power Authority/Independent Electricity System Operator and your utility company. Outside Canada, other financial incentives are available.
Countries are promoting different ways to cut down energy consumption. One of such ways is the Retrofit programs.
Eligible buildings include:Residential housing, social and assisted housing, places of worship, restaurants, offices, warehouses, garages etc. The move to LED will reduce your electricity bills and leave more money in your pocket by moving away from incandescent light bulbs and fluorescent lights. The use of LED lights will reduce your electricity bill by up to 80%.
What are LED lights
Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lights are ‘directional’ light sources. This implies that they emit light in a specific direction, unlike incandescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs, which emit light and heat in all directions.
Hence, LED lighting is able to use light and energy more efficiently. Compact Fluorescent Lights bulbs though more energy efficient than the incandescent light bulbs can be very hazardous to the environment and people who use them if not disposed properly due to it Mercury content. For a more detailed information about how each bulb rates against each other, click here. To see a table with some energy use comparison amongst some common bulbs used in commercial buildings click here.
So, consider switching to LED lights for some of the following reasons:
- Help the environment, Save energy and cut waste
- Cut electricity consumption by up to 80% resulting in even more money in your pocket
- Minimize maintenance costs, install LED light bulbs ( last up to 50, 000hrs) or LED luminaires (Last up to 200,000 hours)
