The least expensive energy is that which we don’t use.

SuperNova #1 –  LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are the most efficient lighting today. Choose the right color temperature for your application and aesthetics.  In a bathroom or living room, you may prefer a “warm” color light. Outside or in other areas, you may prefer a white or “cool” temperature lamp.

SuperNova #2 – Look at the rated life, and choose a quality manufacturer like Phillips, Sylvania, GE, Home Depot’s “Commercial Electric”, or Feit Electric. Different lamps are for inside or outside, for an enclosed fixture or can, on dimmers on not.

SuperNova #3. Be All In, All the Time. Most people are doing things because they have to do it, or were told to do it. Would you rather deal with someone like that? Or someone who passionately believes in what they’re doing?

Quantum Quote: “If you find a job that you’re passionate about, you’ll never have to work a day in your life”.

Worst Clean Energy Moment – On a multi-billion US Hospital Ship changing out indicator lights with LEDs. The panel was not de-energized as the ship’s engineer said – and a whole deck was flooded. Lesson Learned: Believe – but verify!

“Ah HA!” moment. Idea to relight the $4 Billion World Trade Center Oculus with controllable LED lights that could save energy & get everyone united around the additional color-changing capabilities.
