Light emitting diode (LED) lighting is a premium green concept that pays off for companies that invest in it. It is perfect for outdoor and indoor signs of the future.
Light emitting diode (LED) lighting is one of the many green concepts that are proven beyond a shadow of a doubt in today’s market. Although initial outlay for LED lights can be three to five times more than other types of lighting, the payback may be up to ten times faster as it has a higher sustainable return of investment (SROI).
This is the reason many companies have been looking to make the switch and it’s also the reason why you should probably consider doing the same!
What is factored into the return of investment for LEDs?
- Beneficial environmental impact over a sign’s life cycle
- Customers want to support businesses that demonstrate environmental responsibility
- Reduced power consumption
- Utility rebates
- Real estate credits for LEED certification
- Local grant money for environmentally responsible projects
According to the customer survey done by The Lighting Research Center (LRC), a part of Renssellaer Polytechnic Institute, shoppers find displays using LEDs more appealing than displays that utilize fluorescent lighting. Similar results were also found when the LRC conducted performance comparisons of LEDs used in outdoor signage as well.
If that wasn’t enough, LEDs are found in many common sign-types including the following:
- Blade signs
- Channel letter signs
