Why are LED lights more desirable to use than traditional lights?
LED lights use up to 85% less electricity than the more convention light sources, and do not radiate heat. The Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of LED is much higher, the product life longer and the quality of light better. Using LED lights in your homes and business facilities reduces the electrical load and therefore create a perfect match with Solar as energy source.
What is an LED and how does it work?
An LED, or Light Emitting Diode, is a semiconductor device that emits light when electrical energy is applied to it. It consists of a computer chip that is attached to a positive power lead and a negative power lead. The ‘anvil’ on the top of the negative lead, holds one side of the chip and the ‘whisker’ on top of the positive lead holds the other side. The LED is encased in clear epoxy resin.
What is SOLAR and how does it work?
Solar energy is, simply, energy provided by the sun. This energy is in the form of solar radiation, which makes the production of solar electricity possible. Ghana being one of the sunniest countries in the world offers huge potential for solar PV to make a significant contribution to electricity generation. This is how it works.
