Hong Kong Christmas Lights- LED

Tsuen Wan MTR station goes LED Christmas Decorative lighting

Every year Tsuen Wan MTR terminus has being well make up with lot of lights from end November till Chinese New Year. Since 2008, Tsuen Wan District office had decided to go LED to replace the incandescent lamps for such Christmas lights.

In Hong Kong, there are a lot of Christmas lighting in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui Commercial Centre. In recent studies 20 out of 24 major buildings in Hong Kong Island are still using incandescent lights, rough estimation there are minimum 100,000 light bulbs that could produce 1,100 tons of CO2 in beginning of December till 20 Feb 2010.
That amount of Energy is an equivalent of 360 Families' total electrical power consumption for 1 year.

I think Hong Kong is an advance City, but in the sense of environment protection, we are still in the Stone Age. Same as this Super Powers gather in Denmark spending two weeks time in meeting.They created 200,000 Tons of Co2 emission by flying Denmakr. After all, there is no committment at all. The cars are still running with low efficient enginrs, People are till using incandescent light bulbs. There is only about 0.1% of the general lighting is using Efficient LED.

Only LED manufacturer and LED manufacturing equipment company could possibly save the world by producing High Power LED that can beat the price of the Incandescent Lamp with same amount of lighting intensity output. I think we have to wait for another 3-5 Years!
