  6. LEDs, first developed in the early 1960s, produce light
    by moving electrons through a semiconductor. Implementation of
    solar energy has environmental costs that may hamper its application on large-scale operations
    to reduce its impact. The much talked about drawback, the
    lack of evenly distributed light in LED lamps too has been now satisfactorily sorted out by Sharp with their proprietary coating technique of the glass enclosure.
