With a correctly designed fixture:
- LEDs yield very high energy-efficiency, ruggedness, and superior life, as compared to other light sources;
- Required maintenance on such correctly designed fixtures is greatly reduced;
- Energy savings and maintenance savings combine to yield an overall reduction in cost of ownership, as compared to other light sources; and
- LED lights are “green” in that they utilize no hazardous materials. Mercury is a bi-product of a significant number of non LED lights on the market today. Disposal of such fixtures has become a significant environmental problem.
