For the last 7 months I have been pushing the Solid-State lighting technology, better known as LEDs. Not only have I been pushing for my parent company, EnergyLite and my company Lighting Intelligence Agency, but for the good of the planet. It's very frustrating when companies like GE and Philips control the distribution of product to the retail level, but because of their business plan it has given smaller companies a chance to make inroads into the market place. LED lights are the future and the future is NOW. Everyone should read test studies from the Department of Energy regarding LED lights. The energy saved is SUBSTANTIAL and the cost of the product is quite affordable. It's irresponsible when celebrities and politicans push flourescent energy saving spiral bulbs...knowing they contain MERCURY. It's irresponsible when celebrities and politicans don't mention SOLID STATE LIGHTING....and the only conclusion is....conspiracy from General Electric and Philips because they are personally not ready to stock retail shelfs because they have too much inventory in the outdated types of lightbulbs. Those same irresponsible celebrities and politicans will be apologising in a few years over reccomending flourescent spiral bulbs and will be telling you to use LEDs. ALL THE DOWNLIGHTING IN YOUR BUSINESS AND HOME CAN BE RETROFITTED TODAY WITH ENERGY SAVING LED LIGHTS.
THE COST OF THE BULBS IS NEUTRALIZED BY THE LIFE OF THE LED 35,000 TO 60,000 HOURS RETURN ON INVESTMENT TAKES 14 TO 16 MONTHS.
THIS MORNING THE ROCKEFELLER CENTER ANNOUNCED THAT THIS YEARS' CHRISTMAS TREE WOULD BE USING LIGHT-EMITTING DIODES, BETTER KNOWN AS LEDs.
WHY NOT YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS?
SOLID STATE LIGHTING IS THE FUTURE AND THE FUTURE IS NOW
