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

LE965LED &

LE965LEDC

Annual cost of energy
 (24 hours per day x 7 days a week
x 52 weeks/year x $0.089 per kWh)
$233.89 $23.39
Annual bulb costs $4.00 x 6 bulbs per year $0.00
Operating costs per year

$257.89

$23.39

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
