LED Lighting Benefits Part 2

Energy Consumption

Another benefit to LED lighting is energy consumption. LED lamps allow you to utilize much less wattage for the same light output as halogen lamps.   A 35 watt halogen MR-16 may be replaced with a 5 or 6 watt LED MR-16.  You could use 2 watt LED bi-pins to replace 10 watt halogen bi-pins.  The lower the total wattage for your system, the fewer kilowatt hours it will use over the life of the system.  As you can see, it’s not uncommon to use 5 times less energy, which means it cost 5 times less to run!  Depending on the size of your system, that could add up quickly.
