Free workshop showcases benefits of LED lighting

Clark County’s Green Business Program is offering a free workshop showcasing creative uses of LED lighting, including how it can lower electricity bills.

The workshop is from 3:30 to 5 p.m. July 17 at the Heathman Lodge, 7801 N.E. Greenwood Drive.

The event will highlight financial incentives for commercial properties from Clark Public Utilities and others to help property owners, managers and tenants pay for LED upgrades. It also will showcase how LED can best be used as outdoor lighting.

Light-emitting diode, or LED, lights have several advantages over traditional incandescent bulbs. They use far less electricity, last much longer, are more difficult to break and produce relatively little heat. Until recently, however, consumers had to pay more for LED lights.
