Welcome to our weekly "Fun Facts" about LED Lighting!
To kick start our fun facts, lets start at the very beginning with who invented LED?
Here is number 1:
The first visible-spectrum LED was invented by Nick Holonyak, Jr., while working for GE in 1962. Since then, the technology has rapidly advanced and costs have dropped tremendously, making LEDs a viable lighting solution. Between 2011 and 2012, global sales of LED replacement bulbs increased by 22 percent while the cost of a 60-watt equivalent LED bulb fell by nearly 40 percent. By 2030, it's estimated that LEDs will account for 75 percent of all lighting sales.
Who knew LED was invented so long ago!
