Off Grid Home Forums Technical Discussion Energy saving light bulbs Re: Energy saving light bulbs


I am working with a specialsit group at present on utilising new technology in lighting. There maybe some health concerns over compact fluorescents, especially with cheap units, the bends in the cheap lights when they are formed the internal covering is not as thick as the rest of the glass and they can leak UV in small doses, although these are small, over long periods they could be harmful. However, I have been working and adapting dc lights for the last 8 years, our latest bulkhead light now uses a 2 watt led @ either 12 or 24v. Whilst I hate promoting business’s on forums, if I can help in anyway please get back to me.
