Energy-saving Stocking Stuffers?

The winter holidays are just around the corner!

Home Depot and Philips have announced that an LED replacement bulb for the standard 60-watt incandescent will be available in stores starting in December 2010.  Read a review of the product here.

New federal efficiency standards will phase out the homely incandescent during 2012 – 2014.  (The phase-out is going on world-wide.)  The U.S. Department of Energy has been working furiously with lighting manufacturers to develop a high-quality replacement bulb to avoid the consumer disappointment that squirreled-up the introduction of CFL bulbs.

Lower-quality LED’s can be purchased now.  However, consumers are best advised to keep their cash in their pockets until the DOE-approved bulbs hit the shelves.
