LED is a more sustainable lighting option over other lights. You can cut your lighting energy use up to 80% just by switching to LED.
Fluorescents and metal halides need ballasts to work. Often the ballast will die before the light. You will never need to change a ballast because LA LEDs don’t use them, saving on parts and install costs.
Since LA LEDs last so much longer than other forms of lighting there is less to throw away. Replacing lights not only costs for replacement bulbs but also labor. LA LED lights last up to 50 times as long as equivalent incandescent bulbs.
All fluorescents contain some amount of mercury. Mercury is poisonous and bad for the environment. LA LED lights are 100% mercury free.
