LED bulb sales rocket

Element - - Technology -

Sales of en­ergy-ef­fi­cient LED lights have in­creased by 120% over the past year, says a New Zealand sup­plier. “The pos­i­tive re­sponse to LED light­ing in New Zealand is con­sis­tent with in­ter­na­tional trends. Philips Light­ing ex­pects at least 50% of global light­ing to be LEDS by as early as 2015, and 75% by the end of this decade,” says Dave Proc­ter, mar­ket­ing man­ager Philips Light­ing. In 2011, Philips Light­ing sold more than 70,000 LED bulbs in New Zealand and com­pleted sig­nif­i­cant light­ing up­grade projects us­ing LED prod­ucts at Christchurch Air­port and Eden Park, in­clud­ing colour il­lu­mi­na­tion of the sta­dium’s south stand. LED bulbs are mer­cury-free and use only a frac­tion of the en­ergy used in tra­di­tional in­can­des­cent bulbs.
