Why LED Light Day?
This day is to commemorate the illuminous LED Lights that brings colors in our life. Generally, when we consume less power, it is not only good for us, but also for the environment. LED consumes only minimal percent of energy when compared to incandescent lighting and fluorescent lighting. Despite costly, its life span is longer and produces only less emission. A normal fluorescent bulb is harmful even after its lifespan since disposal is very much dangerous to the environment due to the presence of mercury content where as in LED bulb, it does not have mercury and therefore the disposal is easier, safe and secure.
How we can Celebrate National LED Light Day:
Say “Yes” only to LED lights from this day onwards. Share the benefits of LED lights using this hashtag #LEDDay on the social media or else post it in the comment section and we will add it in the interesting facts column. Your interest is very much appreciated in this regard since this a very important social cause.
Interesting Facts About National LED Light Day:
The First LED technology was created in the year 1962 and became popular in the last years of the 20th century. Unlike other bulbs, the light Emitting Diode (LED) allows the current flow in only one direction.
Nowadays, LED products have become a great source of lighting in comparable to that of any other lighting sources. However, the main disadvantage is,it is not quite affordable when compared with other lights.
LED lights have become a greatest solution for many of the problems that we had faced before some decades. It saves up to 90 percent of the energy that was consumed by the other light sources. In addition, it has a long lifespan, bit costly; however, it is each penny worth and no need for maintenance. it works probably for around 50000 hours and produces instant light with not taking even a single second of warm up time.
No second thought since we all know that the electricity that we consume is hugely responsible for the carbon emission that can be contained by means of switching over to the LED lights. A recent survey has estimated that, due to the use of LED lights, a significant amount of carbon emission is reduced. Therefore, we can make a better environment if we all together say “Yes” only to the LED lights.
The penetration of LED in the world’s lighting market has set a huge positive acclaim for the LED Bulbs and the role of LED paved a way for significant decrease in electricity consumption. By around 2020, the LED penetration is expected be more than 60 percent approximately in the Global lighting market.
History of National LED Light Day:
Bridgelux, an industry that produces LED Products, created the National LED light Day in the year 2016, in order to make us aware about the then recent LED technology and its benefits. The day is also founded to commemorate the achievements of researchers Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano, Shuji Nakamura who invented the LED lighting. For this invincible invention, they were awarded with Nobel Prize in physics in October 7, 2014.Bridgelux had chosen the same day to honor their scientific achievements.
