A light-emitting diode (LED) is a two-lead semiconductor light source. It is a p–n junction diode, which emits light when activated. When a suitable voltage is applied to the leads, electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electroluminescence, and the colour of the light (corresponding to the energy of the photon) is determined by the energy band gap of the semiconductor.
Lighting in your home, office, shop, workshop, factory, marine, or warehouse should be the first thing you consider changing to decrease your electricity costs. Using energy efficient LED lighting is the perfect solution and one the best investments you can make. Motion and daylight sensors can increase your electricity savings even more by keeping the lights on only when they are needed. Your Eskom bills will be reduced dramatically just by installing LED lights.
Cheric Energy will bring a choice of lightning to your home, office, shop, marine, workshop, factory, or warehouse so you can decide on site which option to go for. We can show you a comparison, on site, the amperage used for LED against outdated lighting you have on your premises.
