    LEDs are quickly becoming the way to go as color properties have improved dramatically and cost are rapidly declining. If you are considering installing dimming flourescent I have one recommendation - don't! Over thirty years in the business and flourescent dimming has been and still is a big problem and a headache. LED light sources approved for dimming are the way to go. We are using LED fixtures for interior and exterior lighting applications with much success. Yes, they cost a little more depending on the type and quality but the life is much greater, control is much easier and the energy usage is much, much lower.

    I agree with you that LED comes with brighter illumination, but most importantly, it uses lesser power!

    Since my last post, we've begun installing several of these units, with very little problem, at a reasonable cost, & the Customers being very satisfied.
