LED Tube Lights

Popular Science

Posted by Scott



You may be accustomed to seeing the usual fluorescent light tubes in offices, stores and schools. Yet they might not be the smartest choice. LED tubes consume 25% less power than the fluorescent tubes and they contain no toxic chemicals in them (such as the mercury found in flourescents). The downside to these LED lights is the initial cost. At $150 a tube, they may be a bit to pricey for most consumers. The savings on the utility bills, however, may make these LED lights a populare choice.http://leddynamics.com/

Way to go, Scott! When I see all these elaborate Christmas lights all over the neighborhood, I wonder about the energy involvement. Wonder if Santa on the roof could be done in LED lights?

Recommended movie - "What a Way to Go!" Not sure whether it's out in the popular media. I saw it at a private home showing and I think everyone interested in the health of our poor planet needs to see it. Keep it up kids!lruidxlz
