Seeing LEDs in a new light

According to Villanueva, 45% of the Philippines’ energy is lost to old and inefficient lighting. While this is a staggeringly high number, ordinary consumers and more so the professional end users can also do their part in curbing the impending power crisis. Making the switch to Philips LED lighting could be that first big but simple step.

Aside from major savings, there are several other advantages to the use of Philips LED lighting. LEDs have a longer lifespan than compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs and are more environmentally-friendly. But what sets Philips LED apart from unknown brands is the compliance with international standards on safety.

As a solid-state design with no moving parts, Philips LEDs are also particularly robust and can survive regular use in many different types of climate and weather conditions, giving off the same quality of lighting each time you switch it on. Typical CFL bulbs on the other hand are more delicate due to the inherent sensitivity of their components and particularly hot operating temperatures.

With its push for responsible lighting, Philips is currently leading the push towards an environmentally kinder and more energy-efficient Philippines. Solving our own energy crisis may be a bit of a way to go, but the path just gets brighter, one LED at a time.
