An infographic by Chadwicks analyzes the overall energy efficiency of LED bulbs, from manufacturing to the end of its useful life.
The infographic compares compact fluorescent lamps, incandescent lamps, and LEDs. The infographic analyzes different items such as lifespan, energy consumption during use, the energy used to manufacture …
According to the infographic, if a LED lamp requires 9.9Kwh to be made, compared to an incandescent lamp that needs 0.612Kwh, the LED bulb spends much less energy, which leads to greater profitability.
While LED bulbs are more expensive, they have a longer life (between 50 and 100,000 hours for LED lamps, versus 1,000 hours for an Incandescent light bulb). Another advantage is that LED bulbs have to be changed less frequently than incandescent lamps.
