What are the Latest Green Lighting Practices?

With all of the talk about corporations and small businesses being more environmentally friendly, it was only a matter of time before we started hearing more about green lighting practices. If you think about just how much energy is used by governments, businesses and households, simply to provide electric light around the clock, you soon come to realize that all of this energy consumption leads to a pretty massive impact to our environment. There are some exciting lighting breakthroughs, though, that are paving the way to a greener way to light up the night.

Induction Lighting

Originally conceptualized by Tesla over 100 years ago, induction lighting products are finally being mass produced and are one of the most promising of all the green lighting practices. An induction light bulb differs significantly from traditional bulbs. These types of bulbs can actually provide a higher quality of light, while only consuming a fraction of the energy that traditional bulbs use. And since these types of light bulbs can now be produced and sold for reasonable prices, they are quickly becoming the most talked about lighting products in the world.

Saving Energy Now, and into the Future

As of the past few years, these green lighting products have been used in street lamps, parking lot lights, commercial store lighting and as gas station canopy lights. If you think just about all of the street lights in the world, and how much energy can be saved by retrofitting them with induction bulbs, you'll have a pretty good idea of the massive energy savings that will be accomplished as businesses begin to replace their traditional bulbs with induction lights.
