How to save money with LED Lighting?

The question is how to save money with LED lighting

Most kitchens have on average 10 50-watt Halogen bulbs, that have a combined wattage or power usage of 500 watts. Each hour these 10 lights consume is 0.5kWh. As a result, of an energy provider’s typical unit price of 13p per kWh, the 10 lights will cost you around 6.5 pence per hour, at 10hrs use a day the cost is 65 pence, which is £4.55p a week, and £237 per year.

Switching your Halogen bulbs to LED Lights at 5 watts per lamp, which also has the same if not better light output than the 50-watt Halogen bulbs, you will cut your bills dramatically.

The 10 LED bulbs at 5 watts per bulb will have a combined power usage of 50 watts or 0.05kWh, using the same calculations, an hour of use will cost you 0.6 pence per hour, at 10hrs use a day the cost is 6.5 pence, 45.5 pence a week and £23.70 a year.

Other Benefits of switching to LED Lighting

LED Lighting lasts a very long time, under an EU rule, LED Lighting should have a minimum life span of 6000 hours, however, manufacturers have made their LED lights last for around 50,000 hours.
