Copper electronics are the cheaper option when it comes to LEDs, and the technology is expected to catch up to LED bulbs in the coming years, according to a new report from Fox News.
While it may not be the most attractive bulb, the high-efficiency LED lights are more energy efficient than incandescent light bulbs and the material is less prone to damage.
The company, which is based in South Carolina, also said the technology will be available to customers at “lower cost” than the LED bulb.
LED bulbs are typically more expensive because they use a semiconductor that emits light and is susceptible to fading and cracking.
Copper electronics use a more advanced technology and can last longer.
The report said that by 2019, copper electronics will be priced at $0.10 per watt and $0,10 per kilowatt, which are much lower than the current $0 per watt price for LEDs.
The LED lights, which can produce a light intensity of 100,000 lumens, are more environmentally friendly because they emit less carbon dioxide, and emit fewer toxic chemicals, according a news release from the company.
The report also said that copper electronics emit fewer harmful gases when compared to LEDs because they do not require heat-transfer technology.
It is also cheaper because it uses a semiconducting material that can be used in different applications such as in electronics and medical devices.
