LED stands for Light-Emitting Diode. LEDs are small light sources that become illuminated by the movement of electrons through a semiconductor material. LEDs have a wide application range and are widely used Homes, Businesses, New Cars, in LED TVs and in traffic lights.
LEDs are extremely reliable by the nature of their design and the way they are constructed. Individual LEDs have very high life expectancy with very low failure rates.
On the down side, LEDs will gradually “fade” to the point they don’t collectively emit enough light to be useful, however this will generally be a minimum of 35,000 hours and up to 100,000 hours. Compare to Halogen Average 3000 Hours.
The efficiency of the power supply is a critical part of the design of LED light fitting as total failure of the light will usually only result if the power supply fails. Fortunately, power supplies are established technology and have extremely high life expectancies.
Because LEDs have very long life, the formal process of measuring the life expectancy of and LED light is different from other lighting types. Other lighting types measure the point where 50% of the lamps have failed, whereas LEDs measure the point where brightness has reduced to 70% of the original.
Yes. LED Globes come in Warm White (2700/3000K), Cool White (4000K) and Daylight White (6500K). Colour temperature is measured in Kelvin (K)
Under the FREE LED offer LEDs are non-dimmable therefore dimmers have to be disconnected.
However, there is discounted LED Dimmable Kit option available starting from $20
The short answer is between 50% and up to 85% on your lighting expenses.
The cost of running 6W LED is $3 per year
The Cost of running Halogen for same amount of time is $27 per year
You get an instant saving of $24 per year per globe.

The VEET scheme is a Victorian Government initiative promoted as the Energy Saver Incentive. It commenced on 1 January 2009 and is administered by the Essential Services Commission (ESC). The scheme was established under the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Act 2007 and is administered in accordance with the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2008. The VEET scheme is designed to make energy efficiency improvements more affordable, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases, and encourage investment, employment and innovation in industries that supply energy efficiency goods and services. Under the scheme, accredited businesses can offer discounts and special offers on selected energy saving products and appliances installed at homes, businesses or other non-residential premises. The bigger the greenhouse gas reduction, the bigger the potential saving.
Companies accredited under the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Scheme can provide discounted or free products to the consumers in exchange for your right to assign VEEC certificates to Accredited Company. Then certificates are traded on the open markets and sold to the electricity companies to recover the cost of the product, installation and other administrative expenses.
The short answer is YES.
Accredited company provide discounted or free product and service in exchange for your right to assign VEECs to Accredited Company. When you sign the form, you are confirming that the details on the form are true and correct, the products have been installed and you have provided the right to create the VEECs in exchange for a discounted or free products.
Product replacement warranty range between 1 to 3 years.
LED are available through many online retailer as well as shops all around Australia.
