What is an LED
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are solid-state semiconductor devices that convert electrical energy directly into visible light
There are two semiconductor materials that a current runs through and where light and heat are generated at the junction.

Lighting Facts Label

The Lighting Facts Label is registered to the US Department of Energy to assure and improve the quality of LED lighting products. Participation is open to those who manufacture, sell, and recommend the best in LED lighting.
The Lighting Facts Label is used to show the performance you can expect from our products and provides information essential to evaluating and identifying the best options.

Traditional Comparison

· Long life-LEDs last up to 50,000 hours (vs. 1000 hrs for Incandescent)
· Lower maintenance/replacement costs
· Energy efficient-LEDs use up to 50-90% less energy
· Directed light offers better system efficiency
· High reliability, safety & durability
· LEDs are solid state devices, no moving parts, no glass and no filaments
· No heat or UV in light beam
· Environmentally friendly-LEDs 
· Longer lifetime creates less environmental waste
· Size and digital nature offers new possibilities, never before accomplished
· Dynamic color control
· Instant re-strike
· Fully dimmable

Global Legislation to Phase-Out Incandescent Lamps
Energy Independence And Security Act of 2007 phases out inefficient incandescent lamps starting in 2010 and with 100W in 2012 and 60W & 40W in 2014
· Phases out lamps between 40 and 150 watts within the two year time line
· Requires light bulb makers to improve the efficiency of incandescent bulbs by   25 percent.
· Phase II of this will start in 2020, which will effect all general purpose bulbs
Canada, European Union and other countries have enacted similar policies, examples of incandescent lamp bans:
Brazil and Venezuela phase out started in 2005
Switzerland, The Netherlands, Australia and Ireland began their phase out in 2009
Philippines phased out by 2010
Italy phase out began 2010
India will phase out by 2012
U.K. phases out by 2011

Finlandphases out as of 2011

Argentina,RussiaandCanadawill phase out in 2012
All members of the EU will phase out by 2012
· Chinaagreed to phase out incandescent production over the next 10 year

·Chinaaccounts for 75% to 90% of world light bulb manufacturing
