WE CHANGED THE LIGHTS AND WE ARE PRETTY PROUD OF IT!
When we built Lotus back in December 2011, we insisted on LED lighting wherever possible. However, around the mirrors at our styling stations, we needed the light that 100W incandescent bulbs provide. Since an equivalent LED isn’t yet available, we went with the 100W “GE Reveal” bulbs to give us “natural” light. Boy does that run hot and expensive! So, until LEDs are available we recently opted for 23W CFLs in “Bright, Neutral Light”. While CFLs are not the ideal choice we are happy to be reducing our energy consumption by 308 watts per station – that’s a whopping 2464 watts over all – which equals out to a lot of energy (not to mention cost) saved. We think that’s pretty impressive and wanted to share it with you.
