Stories of emission reductions worldwide have given us a glimmer of hope during the current crisis. It has even been reported that we could see a 6% drop in energy demand in 2020.
However, while spending more time in our homes can be more energy-efficient than travelling, lighting and heating an office space, household energy consumption has actually increased by up to 30% during the day.
With this in mind, there has never been a better time to consider switching to low-energy, efficient LED lighting.
LED bulbs use up to 90% less energy and can last 15 times longer than incandescent equivalents. That also means a saving on your energy bills.
Lighting accounts for nearly 6% of global CO2 emissions.
A global switch to LED technology could save over 1,400 million tons of CO2 and avoid the construction of 1,250 power stations.
When you switch to Tala from an incandescent, CFL or halogen lamp, you immediately reduce your carbon footprint by preventing the unnecessary burning of fossil fuels.
Here is a breakdown of benefits of switching to LED through some simple metrics:
By retrofitting your home with Tala you are reducing emissions, saving money on your energy bills, and you can go back to feeling a little smug.
