Based on some simple assumptions, the operating costs of the LE965LED & LE965LEDC can be compared
can be compared to a 300W quartz halogen, with the LE965LED & LE965LEDC coming out ahead in all scenarios.
For e.g., compare an LE965LED & LE965LEDC to a 300W quartz halogen on a tripod:
300W Quartz Halogen
Annual cost of energy
(24 hours per day x 7 days a week
x 52 weeks/year x $0.089 per kWh)
Annual bulb costs
$4.00 x 6 bulbs per year
Operating costs per year
This analysis does not even include the downtime associated with replacing bulbs or the lost
injury time associated with coming into contact with a hot 300W quartz halogen light.
