We're a long way from the CFL now, kids. Do you know what this means?
Philips estimates that about 90 million 75-watt incandescent light bulbs are sold annually in the United States. Switching to this LED replacement has the potential to reduce energy use by 5,220 megawatts of electricity, a cost savings of approximately $630,000,000 annually. According to Philips estimates, switching to the EnduraLED 21 17-watt could also eliminate 3,255,205 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually, or the equivalent of removing nearly one million cars from the road.
As with all bulbs in the Philips LED lighting family, the new EnduraLED A21 17-watt has a rated life of 25 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb. Over its lifespan, the EnduraLED A21 17-watt could save a business or household about $160 per bulb. Available during the fourth quarter of 2011 in the US, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price for consumers has not yet been finalized but is expected to be in the range of $40 - $45.
Have YOU done the math yet? I don't really care about the product cost savings, but the CO2 reductions are amazing. This is Life-Cycle Analysis at its finest!
Go forth, and light up our future, Philips.
