This looks like a fluorescent tube, but it’s actually a 41% more efficient LED lamp [TreeHugger]
We could save the energy equivalent of 210 power plants
We\’ve talked a lot about how energy-efficient lighting, which mostly means LEDs now, is an easy way to reduce your electricity use. The same applies for the commercial sector. For a long time, they\’ve been doing better than the residential sector because they dropped incandescents and adopted fluorescents a long time ago. But lighting all those stores, office towers and factories still requires vast quantities of power. What if we could replace those zillions of fluorescent tubes with something that is both safer and more energy-efficient?
