As per the United States Department of Energy (US-DOE), lighting causes 5-6 percent of the overall greenhouse gas emissions globally. Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) can greatly help in mitigating the adverse effects of greenhouse emissions.
LEDs consume 80-85 percent less electricity than conventional lighting sources and have much higher operating lifetimes (more than 50,000 hours). Unlike the preceding generation of lights – Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) – LEDs release zero mercury toxicity into the environment.
