LED (short for Light Emitting Diodes) are solid state lights which are low energy, highly durable and with a long span compared to typical incandescent, halogen or CFLs.
Main benefits of LEDs as a lighting solution are:
- No mercury thus safe
- No flickering
- Offers full spectrum light, coming closest to white light compared to other lighting.
- Cost saving due to low energy usage, long life and durability. Swapping conventional lighting completely with an LED based system can offer savings of up to 70% since it uses less power.
