About every six months, I troll the 'net for new products that will reduce my electricity bill. Lately, I'm seeing more LED lights which would be a good replacement for compact flourescent bulbs.
The price on these things is getting down to about $12 each, but when you consider that the bulb burns a miserly 2.5 watts (compared to about 13 for a CF and 60 for an incandescent bulb...) and that the bulb should last 30,000 hours (compared to about 8000 for the CF and about 1000 for the incandescent ..)
Seems to me, there could be an enormous savings here. I figure my lighting costs which are now almost all CF, could be reduced to about 20% of current.
Anyone using these new home LED bulbs? Could this finance my next bicycle?
