When you become a franchisee with SuperGreen Solutions, you have the opportunity to help local families and businesses take advantage of all the latest and greatest advancements in the green energy revolution. While technologies like solar power may be the most popular, LED lights are also playing a huge role in this shift. They offer property owners a more reliable, efficient, and safe form of lighting for all different types of environments. When you take advantage of an LED lighting business opportunity, you’ll have the chance to help countless customers make the switch from inefficient and costly incandescents and fluorescents.
What Are LEDs?
An LED, or light-emitting diode, creates light when electricity runs between two different types of semiconductors in a process known as electroluminescence. When these diodes are assembled into a bulb, they are known as LED lamps. While low-powered forms of LEDs have been around since the 1960s, technology that allowed the full-color spectrum didn’t come out until the late 1990s. Modern LED lamps can serve the exact same purpose as incandescent and fluorescent bulbs, while providing a wide range of improvements.
LED Technology Sells Itself
When compared side by side, it’s very clear that LEDs are superior to older lighting technology in just about every way. While this has been the reality for several years, many homes and businesses still use old technology for illumination. As a SuperGreen franchisee, you’ll have the opportunity to show these people the wonders of LED technology while generating sales for your business. Thankfully, LED technology is so good that there’s no need for high-pressure sales tactics or aggressive marketing strategies.
Some people are hesitant to use new lighting technology because they believe it won’t provide the same quality light that their old bulbs deliver. The truth is, however, that the quality of LED lighting is often better than other products on the market—especially for businesses that require high-quality directional lighting for manufacturing. When a customer uses LED lighting, they can benefit from:
- Up to 11 years of continuous operation
- Greater durability
- Significant energy savings
- Lower heat production
When home and business owners learn about the advantages of installing LED lights, you won’t need to do much convincing. LED bulbs can even be used as a direct replacement for common 45, 60, and 75 watt incandescent bulbs, so there’s no reason to replace the lamps they already have. That makes the LED lighting business opportunity one of the most appealing in the green energy market.
LED Growth Potential
Like any smart business owner, you need to know that there’s lots of room for potential growth in an industry before making an investment. This industry has seen impressive growth over the past decade, and 2016 is expected to be the first year that revenues were greater than $30 billion in the United States. Double-digit growth numbers are likely to continue as prices come down, technology improves, and word of mouth spreads.
An LED lighting business opportunity may not only be lucrative, it can make a big difference in our society’s efforts to protect the environment and become more energy independent. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the use of LEDs in homes and businesses across America could save $30 billion in today’s electricity prices compared to the use of incandescents. These are things you can be proud of as an investor in green technologies with SuperGreen Solutions.
