The rapid adoption of LED lighting that began more than a decade ago has dramatically reduced the amount of energy require to light our homes and businesses. This reduced energy consumption has not only delivered environmental good but has also helped disperse significant energy saving dollars across the country. However, like legacy light sources, LEDs also shed light over time, and many of the early LED installations have now likely fallen below their original lighting design intent, leaving these applications compromised and in need of luminaire replacements. In this course we’ll examine the need and value of LED-to-LED lighting conversions.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand why we need to consider LED-to-LED conversions…today.
  2. Identify the most common applications likely to benefit from a LED-to-LED conversion…today.
  3. Discuss the shifting value today’s LED luminaires can deliver compared to their predecessors.
  4. Identify how to remove existing LED luminaires from service in an environmentally-responsible way.
