Benefits of Energy Efficiency

 Energy efficiency in  is the ability to use less energy to produce the same amount of light output, with the same quality and performance.  Technological advances in the past decade have improved the energy efficiency of lamps and ballasts by 30%-60%, resulting in lower utility bills and reduced environmental impacts.

Energy-efficient lamps can save money on monthly electric bills.  Using less energy reduces emissions of carbon dioxide, air-borne mercury, and other harmful pollutants from power plants that burn fewer fossil fuels to meet the lower energy demand.

Lamps with longer life will require fewer replacements, reducing the demand for raw materials and lowering recycling costs.
