Did You Know?

Sixty birthday candles, one 60 watt incandescent light bulb, one 13 watt CFL and one 9 watt LED bulb all produce the same amount of light… 800 lumens.

But modern technology delivers that light for just a fraction of what it used to cost.

If  you read “War and Peace” by candle light, it would cost about $120 in birthday candles.

If you used a 60 watt incandescent bulb to read by, it would cost about $0.31 (electricity and prorated bulb)

But, if you used our 9 watt LED bulb, all that light would only cost $0.07 (electricity and prorated bulb)

Yeah!!! Let's hear it for technology!
