NOT EN­LIGHT­ENED

The Tribune (NZ) - - CONVERSATIONS -

If a per­son de­cides to re­place an old-style over­head light in the lounge, one LED is in­suf­fi­cient to pro­vide the same amount of light in the room.

How of­ten do we see lounges or dining rooms with six or more LEDs?

Surely the city coun­cil thought of this be­fore re­plac­ing light for light, with­out in­creas­ing the num­ber.

The run­ning cost and life­span of LEDs is a huge in­cen­tive, but not when tak­ing into ac­count the in­crease in un­der­ground work, poles and lights nec­es­sary to main­tain the same stan­dard of il­lu­mi­na­tion. Mar­garet Janssen, Palmer­ston North
