Climate Change: LED Lights Making A Positive Impact On UK Energy Consumption
When it comes to reducing carbon emissions, one of the biggest hurdles is the simplest, habit. A bright idea to overcome this hurdle is in fact a light bulb... the LED light bulb.
If millions choose LEDs, their efforts will make a small but significant dent in the UK's energy demand. According to the BBC News (2019), making products more efficient (like the LED Light Bulbs), along with other factors has already been more effective than renewable energy in cutting CO2 emissions.
The analysis of government figures comes from the environmental analysis website Carbon Brief.
Its author says EU product standards on light bulbs, fridges, and other appliances have played a substantial part in reducing energy demand.
The energy efficiency story does not just apply to households. Commercial retail outlets have also worked hard to improve the performance of their lighting.
As individuals and firms are using less energy, it has offset the rise in energy prices. Despite these prices going up, often bills have gone down due to the low running costs of LED light bulbs.
Play your part in reducing energy consumption and make the switch to LED Bulbs. Reduce your bills today, all at the flick of a wrist.
