Do low voltage 12v DC (not low energy bulbs) use less electricity than standard 240v lights?
Found 18th Mar 2012
Am looking to redo bathroom and down lights are either 12v or 240v. Ignoring the obvious safety argument for 12v which would consume less electricity if 50w bulbs were used in both? I need the room to be as bright as possible and was calculating on 75 lumens/sq ft. Is this enough?
