  • Choose LED to lower your farm’s operating costs
  • Get up to 50,000 hours of service

 Reduce electricity use up to 75%  
bulb Depending on the type of lighting in your business, you may be able to take advantage of LED lighting. Not only are they much more energy efficient, they are dimmable, instant on and last four to nine times longer than incandescent bulbs. That means fewer replacements, which is especially handy in hard-to-reach locations.
