Electricity usage invariably leads to higher Electricity Costs, which in turn leads to increased global warming, which leads to Catastrophic Climate change, which then leads to disaster! This is not in any way an over exaggeration, but a reality of what we all face today, unless changes are made to the way we use electricity. The stage is currently set for DISASTER, the graph above clearly indicates, we are not going in the right direction.

Do LED Lights save Energy, the simple answer is they use less electricity to produce visible lights (lumens) in short the answer is yes. As an example a traditional Edison style light bulb consuming 60 watts would produce around 800 lumens. This equates to an efficacy rating of 13 lumens per watt (lm/w) in contrast todays LED lamps still produce the required 800 lumens yet only use 9 watts of electricity giving them a much

It is said that knowledge is power! I believe that to be perfectly true, although no one has the ability to retain all knowledge, that’s why we each specialize in our preferred fields. When it comes to power in terms of energy, knowledge is certainly necessary to understand this complex field. Here at vootu our knowledge is our greatest power, in being able to understand the many ways in which power/energy can be unknowingly wasted
