Toshiba lights up musee du'louvre with its energy saving low-CO2 LED lighting, and will use its industry-leading products to illuminate some of the Louvre's most familiar spaces: Under its partnership agreement, Toshiba will provide the LED lighting for the Pyramids that greets visitors as they approach the museum, the Napole'on Court, and the Cour carre'e, the main entrance to the museum.

My own opinion:
LED lighting has mature to be a considerable lighting source for everything. Reasons are: long life, low input consumption, reduce long term cost and wastage and high brightness.
It may not be 100% problem free at the start, however you are bound to save more going forward !
This would include products like LED spotlight, LED downlight for false ceiling, LED tube lighting and LED bulbs. With the ability to customise colours, you can do more with lighting in future !

"Today Newspaper report" touches on using LED lighting to light up estates in Singapore. Lower lighting costs today with Illuminating Asia SPL LED lightings.

Excerpt By Ong Dai Lin and Ng Jing Yng (Extracted from Today Newspaper 21/09/2011 issue)



SINGAPORE - ... The Bishan-Toa Payoh Town Council, for instance, has seen its utility bill balloon to S$8.2 million in the last financial year... Mr Palmer attributed the increase to higher electricity tariffs and the new HDB flats built in the constituency... "electricity costs account for around 22 per cent of residents' S&CC and are expected to increase as more lifts are installed in the constituency"... 


"The town council will be fitting LED lamps to more than 250 blocks in the estate. In areas which are not frequently used, the lamps will be fitted with motion sensors and the lights will be dimmed when there is no usage, Dr Lam said." 
Summary: 
1. Electricity cost is surely increasing due to higher oil prices and increased demands in energy.
2. The cost will erode our standard of living.
3. Greater proportion of income needs to be set aside for domestic uses.

Solution:
1. Start changing 10w energy saving bulbs to 5w LED Kratos corn bulb/downlight to achieve lower electricity cost at the same brightness.
2. Change your 50w Halogen spotlight to 4w Astron LED spotlight to achieve a saving of more than 70%.

Live smart by saving smart ! Motto: A greener cause for a better cost!
Call us today to enquire how you can get the lowest price, highest quality, greatest assurance LED lights to replace existing fluorescent.

24 May 2011: LED Street Lights still on trial (The Straits Times)

Below article is quoted from 24th May 2011 The Straits Times


A spokesman said it is currently conducting a trial to study the 'different aspects of using LED technology such as energy consumption, durability and maintenance challenges'. LED lights - sponsored by electronics groups Philips and Samsung - were installed on 17 existing lamp posts in Northumberland Road and Tekka Lane in Little India last year . LED lamps can also cost 60 per cent to 80 per cent more than conventional ones but are said to last at least twice as long. If the trial is successful, industry watchers said the prospects are bright for Singapore. It could save $10 million a year if its 96,000 street lamps are converted to LED types.

Last May, Jurong Town Council became the first big-scale LED convert here. It announced that it would change all 95,000 fluorescent light tubes in corridors, staircases and void decks in Housing Board blocks. It expects to save up to $1.1 million a year in electricity bills.

Points of Discussion
1. The basis for LED lighting is to lower cost by lowering the input electricity.
2. People will not be talking about it if the benefits are not known.
3. The hold back is whether it is as good as it claims and the safety level of the appliance.
4. With proper lighting fixtures, it may be possible to solve the safety issue.
5. LED Lighting Singapore project, a greener cause for a better cost ! Would love to have you on the bandwagon.

Using LED Lighting for Horticulture which spurs plant growth

HORTICULTURE with LED Lighting (The April/May 2011 issue of LEDs magazine)

Precise LED wavelengths spur plant growth.

Light sources such as LEDs with emitted energy centered around specific wavelengths may offer optimal performance in horticulture, outperforming broad spectrum sources such as HPS lamps that are widely used in greenhouses today, explains MAURY WRIGHT.

Quoted from: http://www.ledsmagazine.com/features/8/4/2

LED lighting not only contributes by lowering energy consumption, it is taking another leap forward for enhancing plant growth. Lets hope that it can lead to greater and safer food production for mankind in the near future.
