LED Recycling Kits Now Available! Remember the incandescent bulbs of the good old days? Those incandescent days are gone, mainly because of the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) which requires bulbs to be 25 percent more efficient. They haven’t been banned, but this act means that many manufacturers have switched to CFLs, Halogens and LEDs.
Along with this decrease in the manufacturing of incandescents there has also been changes in the manufacturing process of fluorescent lamps in order to make them meet efficiency standards due to Department of Energy regulations. This means a reduction in fluorescent lamps as well.
LED Lamps are more energy efficient
So what to do? Enter the marvelous LED lamp. Most people cannot tell the difference between LED and fluorescent lamps, but according to energy.gov, “Residential LEDs — especially ENERGY STAR rated products — use at least 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting.”
In addition to this, by 2027, more widespread use of LEDs could save about 348 TWh (compared to no LED use) of electricity: “This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today’s electricity prices.”
4 foot LED kits are now available
Our LED Recycling kit is 8.5″ x 8.5″ x 49″ and holds 27 T12 lamps or 64 T8 lamps. What is the difference between T12 and T8 lamps? The “T” denotes the lamp is tubular shaped, and the number is a measurement of the diameter. The 8 stands for eight eighths of an inch (or one inch in diameter), and the 12 stands for twelve eighths of an inch, or one and one-half inches in diameter.
