New $50 - 20 year LED light bulb

2 posts / 0 new

How many people does it take to screw in a light bulb? Just one…every 20 years. Coinciding with Earth Day, Dutch electronic company Philips put on sale the first of it’s kind super super-energy-saving LED light bulb that is projected to last two-decades without dying out. The light bulb retails for $50 – but generates over $160 of savings over its lifetime.

According to estimates by Philips – if every house in America switches over to use the new long-lasting light bulb – the nation would save $3.9 billion a year in energy costs – and cut 20 million metric tons of carbon emission from the atmosphere.

Everyone should wait twenty year and see if any last that long. I fell for that marketing spiel about big savings and long lasting quality with the compact florescents and changed all of my light bulbs, and I can tell you that they burn out about as regularly as incandescents.

Most people attributed the Bank of North Dakota's success with the oil boom in the region, but their latest report shows that last year was their most profitable year ever, despite the fact that their state's oil boom has become an oil bust.
