Power shortage is one of the major challenges that is being encountered globally. Conservation of energy is an effective and economical solution to cater the increasing electricity demand as compared to electricity generation. Increasing generation has a profound impact on the excessive emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs). In this paper, Light Emitting Diode (LED) lamps are presented as an efficient DC loads to influence the electricity demand curves. The application of the tool is carried out on the monthly demand curves obtained from National Electric Power Regulation Authority (NEPRA) of Pakistan. A considerable decline in the monthly power demand is observed by implementing the suggested solution which is equivalent to a large power generation plant. The solution presented is also an effective way to cater the gap between electricity supply and demand. The proposed recommendation for modern lighting can solve the power issue by taking care of environment contamination and would be a vital step towards a pollution free, ecological planet. Similar effects can be observed for other efficient DC loads.
