In this article in the Green Bay Press Gazette, Jeff Koeppel, managing partner of K & B Electric LLC, an electrical contractor and lighting contractor, shares his thoughts on why LEDs are a good investment. Koeppel said in part:

“Most businesses want to convert the entire site at once in order to achieve return on investment within two to three years… Next-generation, ultra-efficient LED only draw up to one-third of what traditional light fixtures draw, which equates to a substantial amount of business and/or consumer savings without needing to alter or upgrade existing electrical panels. Since LED lights project more uniformly, produce a brighter light, and reduce hot spots, it may only take five LED fixtures as opposed to the 10 original lighting fixtures, thus reducing energy costs even further."
