The article offers information on the energy efficiency of the light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. It mentions that LED bulbs are considered as more energy efficient than compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFL), where they consume only six watts of electricity. In addition, LED bulbs consists semiconductor technology and cites its capability of converting electricity to light, which is far more better than incandescent and CFL lighting systems. However, the price of the LED bulbs are higher than CFL and incandescent lights. Light quality of LED bulbs are also highlighted.
