LED Retrofits offer Clear and Effective Benefits

LED replacements for fluorescent tubes provide energy savings without costly infrastructure changes...

In the long term, the ultimately proper and successful implementation of LEDs as the predominant technology in general illumination will be through the use of fixtures and infrastructure specifically designed to take advantage of the unique properties of LEDs. Many elements of LED optical, thermal, and electrical characteristics are at odds with today’s lighting infrastructure.

In the short to medium term, however, there are very good reasons to pursue a strategy to retrofit structures with LED products. Although using existing fixtures for LED products is an imperfect solution, it is nonetheless the solution offering the quickest path to the greatest energy savings over the shortest period of time. As the payback period for retrofit lamps falls steadily below five years, even for fluorescent replacements, the pure dollar impact of a lamp-to-lamp replacement will be attractive enough to entice facility owners toward energy-efficient LED solutions, given that they do not have to incur additional infrastructure changes.
