Now I've found this http://www.solarisled.com/ and I believe that there are conversion kits coming to change over the flourescent fixtures as well. LED's do cost more but seeing that their energy consumption and heat output is lower than current systems and gives the same or better light output, it might be something worth looking into.

The LEDs in my flashlight are not cool by any stretch of the 
imagination. The entire light becomes uncomfortably hot after a few 
minutes, and we're only talking about 5W. As far as I know, LEDs still 
have not come anywhere close to MH for efficiency.
