As you know, Mr Green and I are fans of LED lighting. We’re now running the downstairs of our home on LEDs powered by solar. It’s been a steep learning curve and there are still improvements to make, but it feels good to be part self sufficient with our lighting.
It seems we are in good company with our passion for LED lighting!
Gary Gill has set up a new green lighting internet resource called LED consumer.
As you’re probably aware, LED lighting offers significantly better efficiency than incandescent (up to 80% more efficient) or halogen lighting without any of the negative environmental impacts of CFL light bulbs.
LED lighting is still relatively new, but the future looks bright to us and we feel that soon LED will lead the way in the lighting market.
Gary recognises that cost can be a prohibitive factor and there isn’t much standardisation in the quality of LEDs available to consumers. His goal, through LED consumer, is to provide you with the most up to date LED lighting industry news, latest innovative products and newest applications. Gary will be reviewing light bulbs too, so you get non-biased opinion to help you make good choices and avoid costly mistakes.
As well as the latest articles and releases in the LED market, you’ll find resources to help you make a decision, a supplier index and there will soon be a forum for you to discuss your experiences with other users!
All in all it’s a great one-stop resource for all things LED related. If you’re confused about your choices, want the best deal or don’t know your colour spectrum from your lumens, LED consumer is worth checking out!
How about you? Would you use LED lighting, have you used it and experienced disappointment or are you an LED pro?
