Since their inventions, the massive inefficiency commonly found with incandescent, and fluorescent bulbs has pushed the innovation regarding the development and implementation of Advanced Lighting Technologies.
With the introduction the High Intensity Discharge or HID, the world took the first steps toward advanced lighting technologies. What made these so advanced where the use of natural components such as mercury, metal salts and sodium gas. Although the technology was advanced, the new HID’s; whether metal halide, high-pressure sodium or mercury vapor, continued to create large amounts of heat meaning that they were not much more efficient than the previously used bulbs. Additionally, the use of mercury in the vapor lamps ruled them too hazardous to remain in production.
The tide started to change, however, with the advent Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs). For the first time since the invention of the incandescent, a more energy efficient bulb had been produced that was safe to be used. While these provided the first true steps towards improvement, there were still unacceptable inefficiencies with the CFL’s operation.
The progression of advanced lighting technologies to the creation of the Induction, Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Nano-LED has truly revolutionized the world of electric lighting and most importantly the amount of energy required to operate it. The integration of existing solar and wind power technologies opens up even more environmentally responsible, cost saving lighting solutions! Benefits of using the Advanced Lighting Solutions offered by NEUTEX Lighting™ include:
- More efficient use of energy usage means lower electrical use costs for consumers.
- Lower heat dissipation means lower heating and cooling needs, which translates, to lower electrical use costs for consumers.
- Lower demand for electrical usage reduces overall production costs, which translate to lower electrical costs for consumers.
- Lower demand for electrical energy translates to reduced amounts of the coal needed to produce the energy, which helps the environment & reduces the drain on the country’s ageing energy grid.
