Reduce Costs: Invest in LED Technology
Jan. 29, 2018, 5:54 p.m.

Imagine saving energy consumption by over 50% and still having a luminaire that will be changed every 15 years? It seems unrealistic, but today this kind of technology is already within our reach.

How does it work?

LED is a semiconductor that can generate light without losing much energy and therefore bring more savings to the light bill.

This is because conventional lamps turn only 10% of consumption into light, the rest is dissipated as heat. In LED lamps, most of the energy is converted into light, dissipating less than 20% in heat.

In addition to the economy factor, LED luminaires are also much longer lasting, reaching a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours of use, while old incandescent lights last about 1,000 hours and fluorescent lights around 10,000.

The LED luminaire is most common in industrial parks, offices, shopping centers and public roads as there is a longer need for use (many need to be on for more than 12 hours or even permanently). In São Paulo, for example, Ibirapuera Park and tunnels are illuminated by LED light technology and the idea is that in the coming years all public roads will be as well.

Several cities in Brazil also already have LED lamps provided by LEDAX. We are present on public roads, supermarkets, industries, gas stations, shopping malls, among others. Visit our Cases section and learn more about our work!
