The ubiquitous incandescent light bulb has come a long way since its invention 130 years ago, and as we all swap out our old bulbs for energy-efficient LEDs and such, there are countless old glass incandescents floating around. Some people use them for mini terrariums, or holiday tree decorations, but artist Tim Fishlock used them to create a memorial art piece entitled What Watt? This dazzling chandelier speaks to the transition away from the widespread use of old school bulbs towards greener, more sustainable alternatives . Talk about a bright idea!

HOW TO: Switch Your Bulbs to LEDs To Get Ready for the Incandescent Bulb Phase-Out

Comments Off on HOW TO: Switch Your Bulbs to LEDs To Get Ready for the Incandescent Bulb Phase-Out

By now, most of you have probably heard about the incandescent light bulb phase-out starting this year (likely as a result of the ridiculous partisan political bickering about the lighting legislation in the count-down to the end of 2011). However, a quick survey of your friends will reveal that few of us actually understand what it entails. The law is merely a way to encourage consumers to purchase more energy-efficient light bulbs – such as LEDs – that will save money and energy, both resources that we could all use more of at the moment. If you’re still unclear about what the incandescent phase-out means in terms of what kinds of light bulbs you’ll be able to find at stores in the coming years, or how you can switch to LED light bulbs while still maintaining the same quality and quantity of light supplied by your old incandescents, read on as we spell it out for you in our easy guide. And though we will be seeing less and less of Thomas Edison ‘s most famous invention over the next few years, we think that even Mr. Edison would be swapping his incandescent bulbs for LEDs if he were alive today!

Comments Off on An Efficient 60 Watt LED Bulb For Under $15

Yesterday, Lighting Science Group and Dixon Technologies announced one of their first joint products: A high-performance, omnidirectional 60-watt equivalent A19 LED bulb that retails for under $15. According to the company, “The newly announced bulb fits perfectly into existing screw-in light sockets and creates a clean, bright light level equivalent to a conventional 60-watt incandescent bulb using 85% less electricity.” At a price point below $15, the payback period from electricity savings over a traditional incandescent bulb is only 8 months. Currently, the majority of 60W LEDs retail in the $40 range. At less than $15, this new LED bulb is priced closer to compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) but uses 35% less electricity and contains no mercury. The companies confirm this new technology will go on to power a full line of products, including street lights, outdoor and industrial light fixtures and replacement bulbs. The new LED bulb will be available in India by the end of the year and sold worldwide by early next year. Image source: Lighting Science Group / PR Newswire. LSG press release .
