Energy Consumption

power_consumption_450x450The new US Department of Energy report estimates that the rapid adoption of LEDs for general lighting applications should cut U.S. consumers’ energy bills by approximately $120 billion in just 20 years and save 1,488 terawatts¹ of power in the same time frame. By switching to energy-efficient LEDs, total US lighting power consumption could be cut 25% by 2030.²

¹ A terawatt is equivalent to one trillion (1012) watts.

Matrix Lighting offers a highly competitively priced line of Viribright branded LED that are a truly “green” as compared to standard incandescent and mercury laden CFLs (Compact Fluorescent). VIRIBRIGHT LED lamps use 80-90% less energy than an incandescent bulb and 30-50% less than CFLs, significantly reducing power consumption and helping to achieve global energy conservation goals. LED light bulbs generate very little heat, transferring most of their energy directly into light and eliminating excessive heat buildup that can adversely affect energy costs.
