In the UK the average business electricity bill has increased by over 50% in the last 2 years, a trend which seems very unlikely to reverse. With costs increasing at such a dramatic rate it makes sense for business to try to reduce their energy dependence - it has the added benefit of being good for the environment and that's something your business can shout about. Globally, 19% of electricity is used for lighting, but the figure can be as high as 30% for a business. Efficient lighting and lighting controls can reduce the electricity used in your lighting by 50% or more. That represents a potential 15% drop in your electricity bill, in the current economic climate that can't be ignored.
Do you really need your lights on all the time? This is a question you really need to ask yourself. Chances are you don't. Do you leave your office for 5 minutes and come back an hour later, in the meantime the lights have been burning the whole time. Are there aisles in your warehouse that are only used for 30 minutes a day but remain fully lit for 24 hours? If the answer to either of those questions, or countless others that I don't have room to write here, is yes then you could benefit from installing some lighting controls more advanced than an onoff switch. These come in various different flavours depending on your needs. They can control one light or a bank of lights, they can be sensitive the overall light level in the room this means that if sunlight is streaming through the window then the lights don't need to come on and won't. They can be used to detect the presence or the absence of people. They can dim lights or turn them on and off. What they all have in common is their ability to save you money by stopping you wasting electricity.
It may be easier to think of colored LEDs (RGB) and white LEDs in terms of another industry: Automotive. RGB LEDs are like the internal combustion engine: Reliable, abundant, easy to use and manufacture, and fairly well developed in terms of the potential for new or breakthrough technologies. There are lots on manufacturers and each has their own set of patents and "tricks of the trade" to help give themselves some marketing leverage over the competition. White LEDs are like the alternative energy industry for transportation: Quite varied, still relatively "new", still needing to be market proven, more expensive, more challenging to manage. There are many manufacturers, each using a different technology or combination of technologies to achieve what they believe is the "the next big thing." Following this analogy, RGB LEDs are mature enough to compete on cost alone and the drop in costs is what fuels new applications for colored LEDs that had not been thought of previously. White LEDs, on the other hand are still developing technically and should not be shopped based on cost alone. The need for quality and longevity is what fuels the further research and development into white LEDs.
