The operational life of current LED lamps is 50,000 hours - a stark contrast to the average life of an incandescent bulb, which is approximately 1,200 hours.

Maintenance costs to replace incandescent bulbs can be high. These costs can be virtually eliminated with the LED option.

The key strength of LED lighting is reduced power consumption. When designed properly, LEDs can exceed 80% efficiency which means at least 80% of the electrical energy is converted to light energy. The remaining percentage is lost as heat energy. Traditional lighting methods lose a much greater percentage as heat energy.
