LightWorks is a nonprofit initiative educating the public and helping nonprofit organizations save money and protect the environment
by converting to LED lighting.
Did you know?
Lighting consumes 22% of electricity in the United States, according to the Department of Energy. In a home, lighting may be 10% of an electric bill, but in an office building it’s closer to 40%. The DOE predicts that solid state lighting (SSL), has the potential to reduce energy use for lighting by 1/3 by 2030. That’s the equivalent of saving the output of 40 large (1,000-megawatt) power plants, the greenhouse gas emissions of 47 million cars and $30 billion. In addition, (light-emitting diode) LED lights typically last 6-10 times longer, thereby reducing costs for replacements, labor and disposal.
Help break the cycle of replacing burnouts with "cheap" lamps/tubes that end up costing a lot in energy bills and dangerous CO2 and mercury pollution.
LightWorks helps nonprofit organization save money by:
and the alternatives,
• Connecting nonprofits with local installers willing to provide low cost labor, • Supplying financing methods and links to low cost and government sources
and grants for energy efficiency and environment retrofit programs,
who provide materials at reduced prices,
and utility companies.
