Unbelievably, back in 1767, the first use of sunlight for heat generation was successfully achieved when a Swiss geologist and physicist, Horace Benedict de Saussure, created the first solar oven. He put together a simple pine box with three glass layers. Two smaller boxes were placed inside with black inner coating. When the sun’s rays […]

The US government has abolished the old incandescent bulb and is pushing consumers to maximize energy efficiency by promoting the use of LED lighting over fluorescent.
LED lighting has several key advantages over fluorescent. LED offers a major reduction in energy usage, better light quality, significantly longer life, reduced maintenance expense, produces less heat, eliminates flicker, […]
Why, in a world as technologically advanced as ours, would supplying low-cost energy to all be a problem? That is a question for wiser people than me to answer. I’m sure getting down to the truth of it all would be quite an adventure. Political correctness and vested interests aside, the fact is that most […]
You’ve been hearing about the virtues of LED light bulbs and may get the idea that they’re too good to be true. They ARE a huge advance in lighting and energy efficiency—probably more significant than going from kerosene lamps to the first incandescent bulbs in the scope of possibilities! It’s true.
Here are some of the […]
First the regular old light bulbs we’ve always used in our homes began disappearing out of stores. Now you may be noticing that getting your commercial building’s fluorescent bulbs replaced is becoming more and more difficult. Where have all the fluorescents gone?
US Department of Energy (DOE) regulations began phasing out various sizes of commercial fluorescent […]
In the last 6 years and particularly in the last two, LED lighting has really taken off as the main benefits become more widely known and understood:
Extremely low energy use
None of the maintenance (re-lamping, re-ballasting) associated with traditional incandescent and fluorescent sources
Inherent controllability (instant on/off, full-range dimming), creating additional energy savings opportunities
If you […]
What if there were an easy-to-install, inexpensive, solar powered, LED light that could be wall-mounted anywhere—needed no wires, was waterproof so it could be used outside, and had light and motion sensors so it would turn on at night only when there’s motion and would remain off the rest of the time? What if you […]
Have you thought about how great it would be to upgrade your commercial property to LED lighting but then on the heels of that thought, figured it’s just too expensive?
A lot of folks have that idea. I run into it daily. The funny thing is that we have financing available that creates a POSITIVE CASH […]
The movement to switch to LED lighting is sweeping the nation. Literally. From cities in California to Rhode Island, from an island off the coast of Maine to a Florida sports complex, and street lights in Minnesota to New Mexico! Why?
Huge savings on energy costs
Significant reduction in energy usage
These bulbs last 4 – 5 times […]
