Going Green

Walking lightly on the Earth has never been more important. We at Unitec Electrical are doing our part to answer that call. And it all starts with one of the simplest changes you can make: the light bulb.

The world is moving from the 200 year-old electric light bulb to options that will make a significant change in our planet’s sustainability.

If you are not sure about making the move to LED products, Unitec Electrical will access your lighting needs and make the best recommendations for you. We will give our honest opinion on all energy conscious products and supply comparisons so you can decide easily. This includes the overall lighting design, and installing energy efficient lighting, as well as solar products. Unitec carries premier LED lighting products that are innovative, sustainable, and energy conscious. We also install exterior Creative LED Lighting in innovative commercial settings that pack a visual punch you can’t get anywhere else. Here’s an example of a new home in Stratford that chose to use LED lighting from Unitec.

Why Use LED lighting?

LED light bulbs can last from 2 to 10 times that of a traditional lightbulb. That means there will be fewer light bulbs in landfills. With over five million light bulbs thrown away each DAY* that would amount to a huge savings in toxic waste and land fill.


  • Less expensive to power
  • Lasts longer: extremely long life span (30,000-100,000 hours)
  • Durable, insensitive to vibration
  • No mercury: unlike florescent bulbs and tubes
  • Dimmable and programmable, in many cases
  • Super-fast turn-on, unlike compact fluorescent light bulbs
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Directed light is more efficient use of light
  • Color, without the use of filters and lenses


Wattage of LEDs vs. Incandescent light bulbs

LED bulbs can generate twice the brightness of light at a fifth the wattage. Yes, that is right, the brightness of a 30 watt incandescent can be doubled by a 6 watt LED light bulb.
