LEDs have a 75% higher efficiency. This means they produce 75% more lumens per watt of energy. High Intensity Discharge (HIDs) lights waste 90% of their energy producing heat. LEDs waste only 10%.
LEDs virtually eliminate the need for maintenance.
Switching to LEDs reduces the demands on the electrical infastructure and in turn reduces problems like underground faults.
LEDs have a greater than 50,000 hour life which is 17 years (assuming 8 hours a day operation).
Higher color rendering index (CRI) than other light sources. This is the light's ability to reproduce the qualities of natural light. Directs light exactly where it needs to be (on the ground) with the directional qualities of LEDs.
Rapid on/off cycle capability without detrimental affects. Directs light exactly where it needs to be (on the ground) with the directional qualities of LEDs.
LEDs are dimmable so they are the perfect candidate for smart controls to increase energy savings.
No toxic chemicals or hazardous substances are contained within LEDs. LEDs are mercury free. LEDs reduce waste as they last considerably longer than other light sources (up to 20 HID bulbs during life of one LED fixture).
LEDs minimize glare, reduce light trespass, and direct their light to the ground rather up to the sky.
