What about LEDs?

Exit sign

Wondering if you should switch from fluorescents or halogens to LED lighting? Although they provide highly efficient lighting, LEDs aren’t the best choice for every application. They are a definite consideration for EXIT signs, display cases, and some spot and outdoor lighting, among others. LED manufacturers continue to better mimic the soft light of incandescent bulbs, and their cost continues to drop. Energy Trust of Oregon also has new LED incentives available.

If you want to learn more about the best application for LEDs, check out these two PGE seminars being held September 24 and 25 in Portland: LED Indoor & Outdoor Lighting and Human Centric Lighting. If you are a Pacific Power customer thinking about upgrades, give them a call and learn what’s best for your project.
