Everyone must behave in favor of the triple bottom of the sustainability. Not differently, the SILICON Corporation Company support the great idea of using LEDs to light the world, even in those regions where the energy generation is not a big problem. GO GREEN, GO LED LIGHTING! www.siliconcorporation.com contact@siliconcorporation.com

Soon, our cities and roads will look very different from the air, I have always chafed at the amount of light beamed upwards from each old-style streetlamp. At least with LEDs they can't afford to waste any lumens like that!

One night I was surprised to see white light outside my house, rather than the normal yellowish color-washout light from the corner sodium streetlamp. "Is it a full moon out?" I thought. Nope--they had replaced the streetlight with an LED array light. It was really nice. They are doing this all over California: http://www.pge.com/mybusiness/energysavingsrebates/rebatesincentives/ref/lighting/lightemittingdiodes/streetlightprogram.shtml

Since Hurricane Irene knocked out our power in Connecticut 36 hours ago, I'm appreciating my bright long lasting LED flashlight. A great directional light source. However, for area lighting, the 8 LED lantern is expensive and unsatisfactory. A candle was actually more satisfactory! I think the incandescent / CFL replacement killer application isn't quite here.

There is already a lot of pressure on LED markets and the last time i checked the LED displays were in short supply and selling at higher price. Shouldn't we first make sure that the price come down to an affordable level.

i guess that government is making policies to encourage efficient lighting. I am sure that government will not subsidize LEDs.

This is very interesting. LED has been a strong segment because it is more environmentally friendly.

But still LED has not reached to a level that it can replace 100W bulbs easily. Yes bundle of LED's can hit that. I am sure there will be lot more progress in LED in next few years leading to even more penetration in day to day life usage.

I really appreciate the Chinese Govt for actively venturing promotion policies to boost LED street lighting usage. LED lighting industry has a bright future. Once the price comes down, the popularity and usage might get increased by a greater proportion.
