Three types of Bulbs are choosen to have 720 Lumens (Incandescent - 12lm/W, CFL - 50lm/W, LED - 120lm/W)
Comparision shows that using an LED instead of Incandescent and CFL bulbs saves energy and save money significantlyAn LED only consumes about 360 KWh units for its entire life over 60,000 hrs.By replacing an LED over incandescent bulb, save the energy by 90% where by replacing a CFL bulb over incandescent is 77%Notes -
5. Most LEDs come with a minimum 2-year guarantee. Any defective LED bulb will usually fail within this time.1. Cost of electricity will vary. The figures used above are from the tarrif rates of 1st January 2011 to 30th June 2011approved by the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lankaretailers.3. Estimates of bulb lifespan are projected, since it would take about 6 years of continuous lighting to test. Somemanufacturers claim the new LED bulbs will last up to 25 years under normal household use, but this is not proven.4. Bulb breakage and bulb replacement costs have not been factored into this comparison chart. Incandescent bulbs andCFL bulbs are more easily broken than LEDs, which increases their cost of use.
