Of course we all love glorious daylight, but as the evening inevitably rolls in, spare a thought for the humble little street light.
Remember when every year was a battle to get the Christmas lights working again? Digging around in the decorations to find the spare bulbs. Well I bet you a mince pie that if you’ve bought a new set of lights for your tree this year they will be LED and they’re lasting a lot longer than the old set!
LED’s aren’t just for Xmas (trees) though. In the last few years LED products have been developed for every kind of fitting - they last longer, they are incredibly energy efficient and the quality of light is fantastic.
They are so efficient that a UK wide switch to LED would take away the need to run a couple of medium sized nuclear power stations (or a few more coal ones).
