In order to promote energy efficient lighting, the selected technologies play a crucial role: choosing the right technologies assists in the reduction of the expenses for energy as well as it contributes to environmental protection.
Utilization of discharge lamps (energy saving lamps, fluorescent tubes) promises a lot for end-consumers:
- they are more efficient
- provide sufficient light with less energy (the luminous efficacy is up to 5 times higher as compared to conventional lighting)
- save energy and thus energy costs (amortize)
- contribute to climate protection
However, discharge lamps need another end-of-life treatment as compared to ordinary (incandescent) lamps. Thereby, the subject of disposal of energy saving lamps is sensitive for (in particular) end-consumers as manifold 'rumours' exist with regard to their mercury share.
The brochures and internet links attached to this part of the Service Package aim to clarify and clear up anxieties.
