Energy Saving Bulb News Roundup

Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PressExposure) December 02, 2009 -- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issues a statement saying that all of the square's trees will use LED bulbs within three to five years. LED light strings are a great fit for this application. Beyond saving energy they run much cooler than traditional bulbs, which reduce, if not completely eliminate, damage to the trees due to heat. Buy LED light strings to replace your old strands.

Our neighbors across the pond in the Philippines are getting in on the action as well. A 67-foot Christmas tree was lit at San Miguel by the Bay at SM Mall of Asia. The tree is being illuminated by a mix of over 20,000 CFLs and 47,000 LEDs. This is the second year Felco has raised its green Christmas tree.

As part of Nevada's larger energy saving plan the Reno Arch has gone green. 2,076 incandescent, 11-watt light bulbs are being swapped out for 2.5-watt LED bulbs. The move should save about 70% on energy costs for lighting the arch, which translates into a surprising $10,000 a year. Switching to LED bulbs is a great way to save on your commercial or home lighting expenses. Purchase replacement LED bulbs at Superior Lighting, your energy-efficient lighting supplier.

The New York Times fired back at LED naysayers with the release of a new study. LED critics have often said that the manufacturing of LEDs takes away from their efficiency, a claim that that Osram study refutes fully. The "Life Cycle Assessment of Illuminants" report shows that from manufacturing to disposal over the entire life cycle of an incandescent bulb, the energy it uses is almost five times that used for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and LED lamps. These saving are worthwhile, and just another reason why the use of LEDs is increasing at an ever quickening pace.
