For a good portion of the existence of humanity, people worked, played, read, created, and generally lived by the light of the sun or by the light of a fire. This greatly reduced the productivity and possibilities for ways that they might have wanted to spend their time. But with the invention of electricity came more light sources, and over time, as technology has advanced and new inventions have developed on top of the initial ones, there are more possibilities than ever.
Extending the day and the activities that are possible
While candlelight or the light from a fireplace or lantern could provide the opportunities to get things done outside of daylight hours before electricity become the norm, there are now so many more possibilities, as electricity allows for lights all throughout houses and businesses, as well as outdoors. Flood lights are responsible for providing widespread illumination in large areas such as parking lots, stadiums, and other sporting event arenas or venues. Some flood lights, that are more focused, can be used as stage lighting for live performances as well.
As society becomes more and more aware of the environmental impact we as humans have had and continue to have on the planet, more efforts are being made to create solutions to exist in harmony with the planet, even as many of our inventions have been to the detriment of the environment. There is definitely room to turn it all around, we just have to make the effort. Energy efficient lighting and longer lasting bulbs are just two elements to lighting and electricity use that can help make a difference.
LED flood lights for better energy usage
Providing high intensity illumination has now become a necessity in several different aspects of society and how it functions. LED flood lights are a good way to combat the excess energy and electricity usage. Using LED flood light fixtures can potentially diminish energy usage across the country by almost 50%, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. LED lights only use about 15% of the energy that a typical halogen light will use, but that does not mean that you are cutting back on the amount of light that is being provided. Instead, LED lights can offer as much as 85% more light.
The Department of Energy has reported that around 22% of all the electricity that is generated across the nation ends up being used for lighting. If we can change the norm to one that is more energy efficient, everyone will benefit in the long run.
