When it comes to adopting solar solutions and renewable energy in general, energy conservation is a big deal!
Yes! This is because users look for the best possible ways to cut down on energy consumption in general.
What is Energy Conservation?
Wikipedia defines energy conservation as the effort made to reduce the consumption of energy by using less of an energy services.
In essence, the aim of energy conservation is to reduce energy consumption. This is achieved in most cases by adopting the use of more efficient energy services.In essence, the aim of energy conservation is to reduce energy consumption.

One of the most commonly recommended ways of reducing energy consumption is by replacing incandescent bulbs with Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) and Light Emitting Diode (LED) Bulbs.
LEDs Magazine defines a light-emitting diode (LED) as a semiconductor device that emits light when an electric current is passed through it.
Light is produced when the particles that carry the current (known as electrons and holes) combine together within the semiconductor material.
One advantage LEDs have over CFLs and Incadenscent bulbs is their durability. Some LEDs have a lifespan of almost five times that of conventional bulbs.One of the most commonly recommended ways of reducing energy consumption is by replacing incandescent bulbs with Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) and Light Emitting Diode (LED) Bulbs Click To Tweet
