When they were incandescent lights it made sense to have them on electric timers. I’m wondering if the timer uses more energy than the string of LED lights would if it was on all day. Where does one look for this information?

This type of lighting technologies have been developing so fast at the moment and are expected to dominate the lighting market in the near future.

LED lights can be up to 80% energy saving comparing with traditional lights like incandescents, fluorecents and halogens. They are equivalent to energy-saving lamps in terms of energy efficiency at the current stage. However, LED lights have much longer lifespan, expected to be >50000 hous, and unlike energy-saving lamps, they do not contain murcury, and furthermore, the efficiency of LED is still being improved…

Regards,
Simon

I’m just starting out in community management/marketing media and looking to understand how to do it effectively – resources like this post are incredibly helpful. As our company is based inside the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how you can show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case.

Screens block 20% of the sunlight. This allows for more solar gain and much needed winter sunlight.

Since there are no food scraps, it doesn’t smell, so there’s no need to take the contents out to the big can every day. It’s a win-win-win situation; I get nice, enriched media to feed my plants, our community gets paid for the recyclables, and there’s less waste going into our landfills.
