Highlighting the efficiency of LED lighting, the world’s largest LED free-hanging chandelier was illuminated on April 2, 2008 by Meyda Lighting in Utica, N.Y. But the truly amazing thing was the lighting power of the chandelier was equivalent to 720 100-watt incandescent light bulbs but only used the power equivalent of 11 100-watt incandescent light bulbs, an energy savings of 98.5 percent. Yowza! The chandelier is 35 feet in diameter, 17 feet tall and weighs 7,000 pounds. Not only is the chandelier energy-efficient but, as you can see from the photo, it’s also beautiful.
