LED lights, otherwise known as light-emitting diodes, are devices that give off light when electricity passes through them. These environmentally conscious lightbulbs are growing in popularity, and for good reason, too. LEDs are one of the most energy-efficient and rapidly developing lighting technologies – with their small size and unique design opportunities providing a wide variety of lighting options. When choosing whether or not to switch to LED outdoor lights for your lighting needs, it’s important to know what is behind the technology, as well as the benefits that will come along with it.

Department of Energy statistics reveal that approximately 22 percent of all electricity generated in the United States is used for lighting, and about 10 percent of that is used to power outdoor lighting applications. It’s a relatively small slice of the pie, but market activity is increasingly proving outdoor and landscape lighting to be a hotbed of activity and a great place to look for opportunities in improving lighting quality and lifespan while significantly reducing energy consumption, costs and maintenance concerns. Several major outdoor-lighting manufacturers discuss the trends making headlines in this market segment and ways for electrical contractors to stay on the cutting-edge of this dynamic field.
