Thinking Green with LEDs
Eco-friendly is more than a trending term, it’s a mind-set embraced by the current generation of earth conscientious consumers.
How we light up the places we live and work makes a big impact on how we feel. It also makes a big impact on the environment. Bulbs, fixtures and power sources are important considerations when designing green.
LEDs are an eco-friendly favorite. LEDs, or light emitting diodes, are a technology that allows for extremely energy efficient and long-lasting light. An LED light bulb can reduce energy consumption by 80-90%, last around 100,000 hours, and light up faster than regular bulbs. Although traditionally more expensive, the cost of LEDs is steadily decreasing. Measuring short-term versus long-term costs: LEDs win.
Most LED lamps and fixtures on the market have built-in bulbs, so you buy the whole unit.
Green Landscape Designers
When thinking green, landscape contractors and designers must consider elements least intrusive to the surrounding natural environment, yet still visually appealing. Wall and step mounted lighting fixtures present one of the biggest labor and logistical challenges contractors face. However, green solutions can light the way to solving the myriad of installation obstacles.
