More Energy Efficient-Be the Environmental Solution
LUXEON power light sources are more efficient than incandescent and most halogen light sources. White LUXEON today delivers more than 20 lumens per Watt, and is predicted to achieve greater than 50 lumens per Watt by 2005. When viewing solid state lighting as an alternative, it is important to consider the total system level benefits. For example, due to the decrease in energy used for the lighting of a building, air handling costs drop, generating both additional initial and ongoing investment savings. Additional benefits such as the directionality of light for general lighting and vivid true colors without the need for filters in signaling applications add to the energy efficiency on a system level.

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) contain solidstate technology made in Silicon Valley using similar technologies that are used in the latest microprocessors. These solidstate devices have no moving parts, no fragile glass environments, no mercury, no toxic gasses, and no fila ment. There is nothing to break, rupture, shatter, leak, or contaminate.
