GST will increase electricity in 2015 by 6% for rates above 200 units. So how does this effect you? How much is it to run 20 down lights for 12 hours a day for a year? (refer to attached photo)
- 18W CFL will cost RM 953.96 and
- 12W LED Panel RM 635.98 to run 12hrs per year.
Using 12W LED savings is about RM 317.98 (about 33%) per year. Judging that 18W CFL costs RM 10 and 12W LED about RM 40 (3x the price) and with 1 year warranty, the capital expenditure (CAPEX) doesn’t justify the savings made from operating expenditure (OPEX).
Lets assume that the 12W LED cost about RM 40 x 20 = RM 800. Electricity savings RM 317. You need 2½ years just to get back your capital of RM 800 but the warranty only lasts 1 year.
Even if the 12W LED Panel is sold at RM 20 x 20 units = RM 400. That’s just almost breaking even within the warranty period.
With eLED 2.5W, the savings is RM 821.46 (86%) per year, multiply that with 3 years warranty with a savings of RM 2,464.41 (Returns per eLED bulb is RM 120+) . This savings not even factoring the replacement cost of the 12W basic LED and 18W CFL.
