Why is LED lighting so important right now?
LED lighting is important right now because it is at, or at the very least near, a transition point. The technology already makes sense for use in businesses and continuous-use scenarios and very soon it will make sense in the majority of lighting. This includes the standard, screw-in socket that is used in every building in the country. It might not be a transition that everyone is thinking about actively, but it has major implications for energy use and environmental initiatives. Additionally it’s a really interesting example of how technology changes over time and it results in a noticeable change in our lives.
