What is the 80/80 Rule in LED Lighting?

Save 80% off your electricity bill, Use 80% less energy. 

Those are some pretty amazing statistics. Go green. Save energy and save money.

That’s not all. The numbers get even better:

The LED bulbs last 12 times longer than the halogen bulb – approximately 50,000 hours!

The LED bulbs should last about 20 years !

It’s hard to imagine an environmental and financial case that make more sense.

So here’s what to do:

If you don’t already have outdoor lighting, call your local outdoor lighting representative and ask for a free quote. Any reputable outdoor lighting company will be willing to come out to your home, give you design ideas based on your goals, and give you a free estimate. With some companies, it’s as easy as uploading a picture of your home and they will call you with ideas and a pricing estimate.

If you already have solar outdoor lighting or low-voltage outdoor lighting, call about a quote to upgrade to LED bulbs. You may even be able to use your existing lighting fixtures.

It costs less on the front end and low voltage is still energy efficient. The bulbs don’t last as long as LED bulbs but also cost less up front.
