Switching from conventional High-Intensity Diode (HID) lighting, such as
high-pressure sodium fixtures, to modern, high-efficiency industrial-grade LED
lighting has proven to be one of the most effective sustainability practices
claims a recently published article on Environmental Protection online.
Industrial LED lighting can have a big impact on reducing pollution because
converting to LED fixtures can:
- reduce energy use by up 90 percent compared to legacy systems,
- reduce carbon emissions and air pollution,
- save water, and
- avoid hazardous waste contamination.
Because LED fixtures are much more energy efficient than conventional HPS and
other HID lighting, and they produce up to 60 percent more light output, LEDs
consume far less energy. Adding dimming, sensors and smart controls reduces
light usage by up to 50 percent per day in industrial settings where HPS lights
are often left on to avoid the warm up period.
By virtue of their dramatically lower energy consumption, switching to
high-efficiency LED fixtures in industrial applications would cut carbon
