University of California Studies Possible Energy Savings from LED Outdoor Lights
October 12, 2007
Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory at the University of California is studying the potential enormous energy savings that could be achieved by switching common porch lights with LEDs.
The initial study determined that:
* About 80% of all porch lights use incandescent bulbs
* 6% use compact fluorescents
* Only 15% of all porch lights are equipped with some form of energy-saving control device.
The study will seek to determine the best method to integrate LED lights into porch and landscapes for residential and commercial applications.
