Gallery: LSG and Dixon Unveil World’s First 60 Watt Equivalent LED Bulb...

 

Lighting Science Group and Dixon Technologies India have unveiled the world’s first 60-watt equivalent LED lightbulb for under $15! We all know how much electricity LED bulbs save, but up until now, cost has been a major deterrent to people buying them. With their new, cost-effective product, LSG and Dixon hope to change all of that. The cheaper bulb will be available in India by the end of the year and will hit the rest of the world markets early next year.

    This is an excellent development. As caeman notes, it will also help to shift our conversion to CFLs over to LEDs which can only benefit everyone. Once LSG and Dixon get their production up to speed, it will be very interesting to see how quickly these bulbs are adopted in Indian. The stat that these bulbs may help to reduce the need for the 80 some-odd planned new coal plants by 40% is only one step in reducing the need to zero.

    The time has now come to ban the CFL and its evil mercury content. No excuses not to switch to the LED.
