Switching from fluorescent lighting to LED lighting is a great energy saver. Four-foot long LED tube lights take only 15-18 watts each, versus standard T8/T5 tubes, which take 32-40 watts each. Installing LED lights also means disconnecting the ballast on each fixture, saving an additional 8-25 watts per fixture. Additionally, your maintenance costs drop dramatically, as LED tubes have an average life span of 50,000 hours or 5 years.
If your facility has 100 four-foot fluorescent light fixtures your energy savings could look like this:
200 tubes X 17 watts saved per tube
3400 watts saved per hour
100 fixtures X 18 watts per ballast disconnected
1800 watts saved per hour
5200 watts saved per hour
If your operation uses lighting 10 hours per day, 6 days per week, you will save more than 16,000 kWh per year, resulting in a reduction in your electric bill of about $1300 per year.
