Compared to conventional technologies, Cree LED Lighting products can deliver the same amount of light using as little as 10 to 15% of the power. This huge reduction in energy consumption can enable consumers to save hundreds of dollars over the life of each light.
The Value of Cree LED Lighting
A Cree LED Lighting product, like the LR6TM downlight, can replace a 65 watt light while using only 10.5 watts. In its 50,000 hour lifetime it will consume about 525 kilowatt-hours, costing about $63. During that time, it will never need to be replaced.
The Cost of Incandescent Lamps
A typical 65 watt light lasts for 2,000 hours. To match the light output and longevity of a Cree LED Lighting downlight, traditional lighting would consume 3,250 kilowatt-hours, and need to be replaced about 25 times, costing over $465.
It's a simple story...saving over $400 in electric and relamping costs, for every downlight you replace.
