LED Bulbs in Grenada

LED (Light Emitting Diodes) are the latest and most exciting technological advancement in the lighting industry in Grenada. LEDs are small, solid light bulbs which are extremely energy efficient and long lasting. LEDs operate differently than traditional incandescent light bulbs. This makes LEDs bulbs in Grenada far more rugged and durable than traditional incandescent light bulbs. LED technology also offers many additional advantages over incandescent, neon and compact fluorescent lighting devices – such as exceptionally longer life span (60,000 hours), enormously lower energy usage which leads to lower JPS utility bills,(90% more efficient), reduced maintenance costs and higher safety. LED bulbs in Grenada are currently being used for a wide variety of applications such as: residential lighting, architectural lighting, automotive, warehouses, factories,  broadcasting, electronic instrumentation, entertainment and gaming, industrial automation and controls, traffic and safety & transportation.

Efficiency of LED Bulbs in Grenada

LEDs are extremely energy efficient and consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. Since LEDs use only a fraction of the energy of an incandescent light bulb there is a dramatic decrease in power costs. Also, money and energy is saved in maintenance and replacement costs due to the long LED lifespan.

Because of the low power usage of LEDs, they are becoming extremely popular for light sources in remote areas that use solar panels.

Although LEDs have a higher initial cost than incandescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs, the cost is quickly recouped over time in lower electricity costs.

Did You Know LED Bulbs Are Eco Friendly?

Eco-friendly: Another great benefit of using LED lights is that they are eco friendly! A regular incandescent light bulb contains many harmful elements like Mercury etc which are extremely harmful for the environment. An LED bulb on the other hand is made up of eco friendly toxin free material.

Longevity of LED Bulbs

LEDs have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours compared to 1,500 hours for incandescent bulbs. An LED light will last over 7 years (constant use) before needing replacement. On average, LED bulbs last 10 times as long as compact fluorescent bulbs, and 133 times longer than typical incandescent bulbs. Long lifespan of LEDs will dramatically reduce maintenance costs and lower long-term operating costs compared to traditional incandescent and fluorescent tubes.

LED lifespan scenarios:

–         50,000 hours powered 4 hours/day  = 34 year lifespan

–         50,000 hours powered 8 hours/day  = 17 year lifespan

–         50,000 hours powered 24 hours/day = 6 year lifespan

Should I upgrade to LED bulbs in Grenada?

it is a good idea to upgrade the existing bulbs in your Grenadian home to newer energy-efficient LED bulbs. These bulbs are also becoming a sought-after option for commercial lighting because of their higher quality of illumination, better brightness, improved definition and lesser energy consumption when compared to their incandescent equivalents. They are also advantageous over energy-efficient CFL bulbs in terms of safety and environmental friendliness. This is because LED bulbs do not contain mercury as in CFL bulbs, which can lead to hazardous cleanup process if they break. Further, LED technology does not involve heat generation, which makes it safer to handle even when the bulbs areon. The cool operation allows them to last longer as well. High quality LED bulbs have a life expectancy of about 40,000 hours. Wholesale packs provide an economical solution to meet the lighting needs of the entire home. Most of these packs contain bulbs that can be fixed into existing sockets without installing new hardware. New homes have sockets that are especially designed for various types of LED lights.

Durability of LED Bulbs

LEDs are solid state lighting devices that utilize semiconductor material instead of a filament or neon gas. An LED light is a tiny chip encapsulated in an epoxy resin enclosure, which makes LEDs far sturdier than traditional incandescent light bulbs or fluorescent tubes. Since LEDs don’t use fragile components such as glass and filaments, LEDs are able to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperature.

 

Safety of LED Bulbs

 

Improved safety may be LED’s most important benefit

LED lights generate virtually no heat therefore they are cool to the touch and can be left on for hours without incident or consequence if touched. LED’s produce 3.4 btu’s/hour, compared to 85 for incandescent bulbs. In comparison, incandescent lighting expels 90% of the energy it consumes via heat, making the bulbs hot to the touch. LEDs reduce the potential for safety risks such as burns and fires.

Environment

LEDs are made from non toxic materials, unlike fluorescent lighting that uses mercury that may pose a danger to the environment. LED’s are also recyclable and considered “green” or Earth-Friendly.

Color

LED lights are offered in a variety of base colors such as Red, Green, Blue and Amber. Because traditional incandescent light bulbs use filters to produce colors, they are extremely inefficient. LEDS can be blended together to produce millions of color options.

Future

 

LEDs are poised to replace traditional incandescent light bulbs. LEDs are rapidly becoming the preferred lighting solution of both professionals and residential users. LED technology is continually advancing – producing brighter LED bulbs.  The U.S. Department of Energy hopes to reduce the electricity used for lighting by 50% by converting to LED based light sources.

Uses of LED in Grenada

LEDs are currently used for a wide variety of different applications in Grenada such as: residential lighting, aerospace industry, architectural, automotive, broadcasting, electronic instrumentation, entertainment and gaming, the military, traffic and transportation.  Since LEDs are focused lights they prove best at specific lighting tasks such as desk lamps, reading lights, night lights, security lights, spot lights, accent lights and lighting for signage.

 

How To Switch To LED Bulbs. There are only 4 easy steps you need to take:

1. Check your existing fitting. A few things to note are the size (as not all bulbs will fit), the current wattage (usually printed on the bulb- this allows you to measure the equivalent brightness in an LED) and the cap type (what bulb will fit in the fitting e.g GU10, GLS)

2. Order. Once you have chosen your bulb(s), you can order with confidence.

Longevity of LED Bulbs in Grenada

LED bulbs last a long time and compared to the life of a regular light bulb it seems like an eternity. A typical light bulb has a life of about 1500 hours max and an LED bulb? How does an operational expectancy of 100,000 hours sound? Yes, you read that right, LEDs can last almost 20 years! So go with your kids and buy one today because it’ll last till they go to college or even beyond that.
