How Blue LEDs Have Impacted the World

A few decades ago, professional electrical contractors serving Columbus weren’t using LED lights in the same way that they are today for electrical service. Task, atmospheric, and security lighting have all relied on incandescent or fluorescent bulbs, but the tide is turning. Watch this video on how blue LEDs have impacted electrical contractors and the world.

Red and green LEDs have been around since the 1980s, so what makes blue so special as a latecomer? Once blue LEDs were developed in the 1990s, the 3 colors could be combined to make usable white light. This created countless opportunities to improve efficiency in residential and commercial areas, and it has even given promise to underdeveloped nations that don’t have access to the electricity we take for granted. LED lights can also use energy from batteries or even solar energy from panels for increased efficiency. They last exponentially longer than alternatives and continue to become more affordable.
