LED Lights Bring Glimmer of Hope

The technology of LED is able to convert electricity with virtually no waste heat.The acronym stands for light emitting diode, and this technology uses a tiny fraction of energy consumed by conventional incandescent and fluorescent bulbs for a given amount of light. The working life of LED lights is measured in tens of thousands of hours, too.  LED technology is poised to boost the energy efficiency and reliability of area lighting in a big way. Poised, but not quite there yet for all applications.
