Lighting takes up more of the United States energy consumption than many people realize. It has been estimated, by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) that nearly 22% of all power generated across the nation is used for lighting. To cut down on the amount of electricity consumed in the United States, switching to more energy efficient lighting can make a big difference. That is where putting in LED lighting or using maize LEDs can be so important. But what is LED lighting exactly?
The acronym “LED” is short for light-emitting diode? In other kinds of lighting, such as halogen or incandescent bulbs, there is a filament through which a current is passed. LEDs, even high intensity LEDs or maize LEDs, do not make use of a filament. Rather the current moves through a semiconductor. When the current, made up of electrons does this, light is generated. One reason that people like this f
