Martin Methodist College has converted a majority of its lighting to LED and is moving toward 100%?!
The annual energy consumption for an LED bulb is around 30 times lower than for a corresponding incandescent bulb. A typical LED bulb lasts 50 times longer than the typical incandescent bulb!
LED bulbs consume less power per unit (lumen) of light emitted. This reduces greenhouse emissions from power plants.
Carbon dioxide emissions for LEDs are also low. Roughly, one LED bulb will minimize greenhouse gas emissions by almost half a ton!
