Find green business solutions
Take a walk around your home and your landscape and count how many places you could save with LED lights. And then put a check mark by the LED lights that could be solar powered! Wow!

Residential LED Lighting

Make sure you thought about these lighting solutions:

Recessed hallway lights

Closet lights

Under-cabinet lights

Bathroom ceiling lights

Bathroom vanity lighting

Replacements for fluorescent lamps

Night lights

Porch lights

Street address signs

Bedside night lamps for reading

Desk lamps

Portable shop lights

Bike lights

Porch lights

Yard lights

And now that you've listed all those lights...how about thinking through how many of them you could eliminate? The night sky and all the wildlife, scientists.and light sleepers will thank you. And if they can't, your smaller electric bill will be thank you enough!

LED Lighting Innovation Breakthroughs

The LED (Light emitting diode) lighting industry is working overtime to develop the potential and infrastructure such as retrofit bulbs and fixtures / luminaries to bring LEDs into every application in the residence and office. And industry.

Even 18-wheeler trucks are finding that LED lights reduce the electrical load on the truck and save them gas at the same time these high-brightness lights improve their visibility. The same benefits of directional light, bright visibility, low energy use and innovative design features are available for indoor and outdoor lighting applications.

LED Lighting Sources

American companies are developing a reputation for quality products, and Chinese companies are developing a rapid flow of low end applications such as Christmas lights, street number signs and night lights.

Many of the estimated lifespans of lights are just that -- estimates. It's hard to measure a light that could last 5 years when the bulb has only been around for a year or less! But the US Department of Energy is developing testing methods to judge the effective life, the amount of life, and other features to give consumers confidence in the longevity and dependability of LED lights.

Japan, Australia and England are also contributing to the variety and efficacy of LED lighting innovations.

Lighting Jobs for the Future with LEDs

There's a whole new vocabulary to learn if you want to go professional with your LED lighting enthusiasm. Lumens. LED Drivers. Prewired Single LEDs, Light Modules, portable lights, animated light displays...and luminaries are just a few of the new terms that define this new kind of light that is highly directional, available in variable colors, and is the most energy efficient lighting yet invented.

Solar Powered Lights

Solar Powered Lights can be installed permanently, semi-permanently or be portable. Use solar powered lights for sheds, barns, garages, as a portable emergency light, or for night security lighting.

Addition of extra solar panels increases the ability to add more lights, or reduce your electric bill if you keep the same or lower level of lighting.

An additional 10 watt solar panel will allow an additional 350ma light source, and increases the battery charging ability during low sunlight periods.

An additional 7 amp battery can be connected to the original. If a 20 watt solar panel were added, an additional 700ma of light source can be connected, after the extra battery is connected.
