From Solar Applications to Christmas, LEDs Light the Night

Advances in LED lighting continue to pour forth, while some programs are promoting awareness of LED lighting by promoting Christmas light exchanges.

New research from the state-funded Florida Energy Systems Consortium may result in a combination solar cell, LED and energy storage system.
The system would do away with the need for an inverter, making adoption of renewable energy more cost-effective, via GreenTech Media. The module would put a solar cell with clear organic material on top of an organic LED. During the day, the LED would project light to a platform that contains lithium-ion batteries. Essentially, the LED would be used during energy collection and in providing light at night.

Across the country, efforts to push the notion of LED Christmas lights have resulted in a light exchange in California’s San Gabriel Valley.

With backing from Southern California Edison, the program allows residents to exchange up to two strings of older incandescent Christmas lights for newer, more efficient and longer-lasting LED Christmas lights, reports the Pasadena Star-News.
