LED Flood Lights Proliferate
What will happen with this advent of LED Lights on the streets and buildings of our cities?
Many buy LEDs to light up their yard because they know LEDs are environmentally friendly and use little energy. But have you noticed how people seem to put up more and more strings of LED Christmas lights every year – until they might have ten times more LED bulbs than they used to have incandescent bulbs?http://www.green-energy-efficient-homes.com/outdoor-led-lights.html
Are people simply adding more demand as LED lights make lighting cheaper? The government’s answer in 2015 was to somehow deploy another 10 billion LEDs throughout the world in markets where the primary fuel is kerosene and lighting is old school incandescent. This is to improve efficiency of power usage but it actually increases power consumption where it wasn’t used before, thus, increasing the world carbon footprint which is exactly the opposite of any government’s power mission.
