1. The Major Benefits of LEDs
Rey-Barreau says: Today, LEDs exceed 100 lumens per watt, and we expect that number to double in the next 10 years. LED life is anywhere from 25,000 to 50,000 hours. LEDs also don’t generate a lot of heat, and the heat of an LED gets absorbed back into the fixture. As a result, LEDs are much cooler to operate.
