WIEC has begun phasing out some of our older high pressure sodium rental lights with LED lights. When a member calls our office with a non-working high pressure sodium area light, we will look at the age of the light and the repair history. If we determine that the light is older, has been repaired a lot or if it cannot be fixed, we will give the member the option of replacing it with a LED rental light.
Although the LED lights cost more, they do last longer, use much less electricity and are more durable that their predecessors. They do not contain a gas or an element of any kind. Instead, the entire LED is made up of a semiconductor; which is solid in nature and makes LEDs more durable. LED achieve full illumination immediately. They have an estimated lifespan of almost 50,000 hours, which works out to about 11 years (working 12 hours a day). All this will reduce the repair and maintenance costs WIEC incur.
Costs are below. The replacement LED lights will have a bright white light instead of the amber color of the high pressure sodium lights.
