Too Cheap to Ignore –  That’s Today’s LED Lighting.

That’s today’s LED lighting.

With significant advances in technology and price drops in the last two years, homeowners are learning that LED bulbs last almost as long as a mortgage and cost less than a pizza.

Now is also prime time for businesses to take advantage of LED lighting.  Often slower to adopt new technology because of the added expense, businesses, governments, non-profits and institutions stand to save even more than consumers by switching to LED. That’s because their lighting sources may be more inefficient and may be on for longer periods of time than consumer applications.Plus, there are currently rebates, incentives, and financing programs available for commercial, government, and non-profit organizations, which can increase the return on investment.
