Source: CIOL; December 16 , 2013
The LED bulbs are implementing new semiconductor technology. Next
generation lighting achieves a complete replacement of incandescent
filament bulbs with LED lighting that is more energy efficient, lasts
longer and has a significantly lower cost of operation. LED lighting
decreases labor costs of replacing bulbs in commercial situations. The
LED bulbs are implementing new semiconductor technology. Worldwide LED
lighting markets are poised to achieve significant growth as buildings
and communities lead the way in implementing the more cost efficient
systems. In some cases, the utility plants are providing funding and
financing so that lighting users can make the shift to LED lighting.
