Energy Saving LED Signage
Help your customers save up to 90% in energy costs
By choosing LED signs or by upgrading to LED from neon or incandescent, users can save up to 90% in energy costs. LED signs are energy efficient; they reduce energy costs and also decrease the amount of CO2 emissions compared to any other light source. This not only makes your customers more environmentally friendly by reducing their carbon footprint, but as energy costs continue to climb, your customers cost savings will continue to multiply.
A recent study compared the energy costs of the different illuminations sources for our open/closed sign and for the red/green signal. The results were impressive, proving that annual energy costs savings for an LED open/closed sign could save up to $140 per sign and an LED red/green signal can save over $50 per signal.
Energy Cost Comparison
for an Open/Closed Sign

iSIGNS Inc.'s LED signs have a life span of over 100,000 hours and are backed by a 5-year warranty. We stand behind our products using high quality components, and we improve the performance and life expectancy by:
- Practicing green engineering techniques
While maintaining the brilliance of the LEDs, we run our signs at lower milliamps to keep operating temperatures low. This practice not only extends LED life expectancy, but they consume less energy than standard LED signs.
- Using high quality LEDs
We use the brightest LEDs on the market. They are made with special epoxy, which protects the LEDs in high temperatures and improves their performance and life expectancy.
To get a perspective on the energy costs, the chart on the left compares open/closed signs in three different illuminations: Incandescent, neon signs, and LED. The annual operating costs of the incandescent, neon and LED sign were: $145.07, $126.14 and $4.20, respectively. The LED sign with a mere $4.20 in annual operating costs saves $144.87/sign compared to incandescent and $121.94/sign compared to neon.
In the chart below, is a comparison of the red/green TCI signal, which has incandescent lamps, and the TCIL signal, which has LED light engines. The annual operating cost for the incandescent signal is $55.71 and the LED signal only costs $5.26/year. iSIGNS Inc.'s LED signal also has easy maintenance because just like an incandescent lamp, the LED light engines can screw into any medium sized socket. So the TCIL not only saves on energy costs and lasts longer, but it is just as easy to maintain as any incandescent signal.
