LEDKE Technology Co., Ltd.
The green lighting source means the lighting appliances through scientific design, with high efficiency, long life, safe and stable performance (including electric light, light electrical accessories, lamps wiring devices, controller and light dimmer devices). Through the use of green lighting, finally improve and enhance the way people work and living conditions, thereby creating an efficient, comfortable, safe, economical and beneficial to the environment, and fully reflects the lighting environment of modern civilization.
January 1991, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) first proposed the implementation of the "Green lighting" and launched the "Green lighting program" concept, soon the concept supported by the United Nations, and many developed countries actively take the appropriate policy and technical measures to promote green lighting. November 1993 the Economic and Trade Commission of China started Green Lighting Project, and formally included in the national plan of 1996.
Energy saving and environmental protection are two basic elements of Chinese economic development. According to the latest statistics, Chinese annual electricity up to 2000 billion kWh, that is 12% of the total generating capacity, about 2 and a half full-load power generation of Three Gorges. If use efficient solid-state light source to replace part of the current General Electric light source, especially incandescent, we can save half electricity approximately 10,000 billion kWh. In addition, combust a ton of coal will emit hundreds of kilograms of SO2, NO2, dust and CO2, and extensively damage the atmosphere and environment, once use the green lighting source, we can reduce hundred million ton of air pollution, and protect the Earth's ecological environment effectively.
