Prize-Winning LED Lightbulb To Arrive Just In Time For Earth Day

Philips, the Netherlands-based lightbulb manufacturer that won a 2007 congressional contest to create an energy-saving replacement for the incandescent 60-watt bulb, plans to start selling their LED bulb (the "L bulb") in stores just in time for Earth Day, this Sunday.

It will retail for $US60 at home hardware stores, with an instant $US10 rebate to consumers, bringing the cost down to $US50 for 30,000 hours of LED light. If used for four hours per day, that works out to 20 years of light! []
