LED Savings Calculator

Thinking of switching your old halogen downlights for LEDs? I found this great calculator for working out how much you'll save. I did some number for my friend's recent LED purchase.

Even using them for only 2 hours a night, they still pay for themselves in a year. Over 10 years they save $233. (Not bad for $8 each.)

With those kind of energy savings it not surprising that a big uptake of LEDs would be enough to close Hazelwood (Victoria's notoriously polluting power station from the 1950s).

PS. My friend mainly likes being able to eat dinner without the extra heat of the old lights.
