O LIGHT POLLUTION Four Components of Light Pollution:, Urban Sky Glow Light Trespass The brightening of the night sky over inhabited areas Light falling where it is not intended, wanted or needed Glare Clutter Excessive brightness that causes visual discomfort Bright, confusing and excessive groupings of light sources United States Light Use: EIA estimates that in 2011, 461 BILLION kilowatt-hours about 461 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity were used for lighting by the residential and commercial sectors. Equal to about 17% 12% total electricity consumed by both of these sectors of total U.S. electricity consumption.

Negative health effects from flourescent lights include: Contributes to Enhances tumor formation agoraphobia Breast cancer rates among night workers Increased stress in humans In the Office LED TROFFER Lights IBOLLOnt FLUORESCENT ETnOBEght Panels LED troffer lights often can replace fluorescent panel lights. Because you only need one bulb per light panel versus the typical 3 fluorescent light panel bulbs, you can cut bulb usage by 1/3. THE FUTURE THE E WITH LEDS The use of Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology in the lighting industry is a relatively new phenomenon. However, bans on older lighting methods are a global phenomenon.
