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 .
