As more people show an interest in LED rope lights, strip lights and bulbs in the commercial and residential sectors alike, manufacturers are looking to create energy-efficient fixtures that can help individuals reduce their utility costs.
One company that has made it a priority to develop LED lights to better homeowners and commercial workers alike is the Lighting Science Group. Throughout the past few years, the business has made an impact in the LED industry with its lines of top-quality fixtures. In 2011, the Lighting Science Group announced that it had sold 4.5 million light bulbs. This 450 percent increase from its 2010 sales now make it the largest producer of LED lights in North America.
"As we celebrate 2011's achievements, we also look ahead to our anticipated opening of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in India, our plans to penetrate both the subcontinent's and Asian markets, and to increased consumer and business adoption of LED solutions overall," said Jim Haworth, chairman and chief executive officer of Lighting Science Group.
LED rope lights, string lights and bulbs have been confirmed to last longer than standard incandescents by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In addition to their energy efficiency, more people are using LED lights in their homes and workplaces to reap these benefits.
