The article focuses on the energy-efficient lighting sources for the kitchen. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, compact fluorescent lamps use about 75 percent less energy than standard incandescent sources and last up to 10 times longer. Light emitting diodes (LED), on the other hand, offer a long lamp life of 50,000 hours--20 times that of the average halogen lamp. It relates the role of LED on energy conservation.
