Four Things Every Retailer Should Know About LEDs
May 4, 2012 - 3:51pm
Lighting expert Joe Rey-Barreau reveals the solid-state lighting essentials every lighting showroom needs to know.

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.
