The use of LEDs and other energy-efficient lighting products in a city such as Las Vegas could have a profound effect on the global climate, it has been suggested.
Rick Hobbs of Anaheim Signs made his comments as the organisation announced that it will now only use low-voltage LEDs and green electronic ballasts to light all of its sign products.
He stated that the majority of existing signs are not efficient in the way they use energy, with some fittings and ballasts dating back up to 20 years, when environmental awareness was far less of a concern within the sector.
"With the current energy crisis and worries of global warming, the use of these products in Las Vegas alone would save an enormous amount of energy," Mr Hobbs concluded.
In recent days, an article for the Guardian's BusinessGreen network noted that LEDs are playing a major role in an "energy efficiency revolution" that is taking place.
