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.
