What characterizes the LED? 

Remembering the last post we made about this technology (LED), we learned that “upon receiving a very low intensity electric current, it emits light efficiently and with high performance.”

So it has wide advantages over the old technologies.

In the following image you can see the three most common types that we find in stores. 

Types of technologies

From Left to Right: Incandescent, Fluorescent and LED

Commonly, we find “fluorescent” bulbs everywhere. They are an old technology cheap and easy to find. The “incandescent are even older and are those yellow light bulbs. On the other hand, in the case of LED, the price of each bulb is usually higher than that of an incandescent and / or fluorescent one. But the advantages are indisputable. 

Its best known advantage is the saving capacity that means the use of LED to any other technology. But;

How much do you save?

Light bulbs can mean savings of up to 80% on your light consumption. How? There are bulbs with the same lighting capacity of up to eight times lower wattage than a current bulb. If we add to this the fact that LED technology has, by far, a better guarantee of performance and life; The advantages are indisputable. A light bulb of this type can last up to 5 years without having to be changed.

For example:

Light bulbs with the same lighting capacity:

  • Lumens: 500  
  • Incandescent bulb: 60 W
  • LED bulb: 6-7 W

That is why we constantly recommend you to convert to LED technology. It is one of the key steps that are part of our list of recommendations for Energy Saving and Energy Efficiency.

We love to share success stories. A client that we had months ago was the Coffee Institute of Costa Rica (ICAFE), which opted to generate savings with solar panels.  

Monthly consumption chart

Monthly Consumption Chart

In the column on the left, we can see the monthly average electric bill that the institution had in its headquarters before installing solar panels. In the column on the right we can see the current panorama, where the panels have already begun to generate energy, so that the electric bill of this last month reached only one hundred three thousand one hundred seventy-three colones. Contrary to the seven hundred twenty thousand forty-five colones that were paid before. Generating a monthly electricity savings of six hundred sixteen thousand eight hundred seventy-two colones.

A distributed generation system was installed, that is to say “connected to the network” .  With a total of 151 solar panels and the use of inverter technology. 

The system will generate a mitigation (non-emission) of 3.54 tons of carbon dioxide (Co2) annually.

This week we delivered a Distributed Generation project. The use of Solar Panels is gradually recognizing as a method by which they can bet Costa Rican businesses that want to save energy to the planet and in passing, help the pocket. In this case the use of clean energy will improve the conditions of Distribuidora Gonzalez.

Distribuidora Gonzalez is located in Guápiles and is a business that stands out for the variety of products it distributes in the area.
