LED lighting to leverage electric production

Post by wheelema »

Once Outback grid-tie is approved, purchased, and installed, I still need to eliminate draw where possible. Can anyone point me to a provider of LED lighting or other high efficency lighting? Many thanks!!

They are great for accent and background lighting - although the AC versions can flicker some - which is okay for having fun but gets old after a while in general use.

LED lights are available in a great many places. West Marine has a good assortment, as do most RE retailers. www.theledlight.com has a good selection.

Note that if general purpose lighting is your goal, flourescents are still a bit more efficient in terms of lumens/watt. Northern Arizona Solar has a good assortment of them. LED's excel when you need a very small but efficient light source.
