More consumers are become convinced of switching their old incandescent bulbs with new LED bulbs. LED technology is becoming better and better and a lot cheaper as well. LED sticker shock is mostly behind us. When Philips introduced 60-watt equivalent LED light bulbs in 2010, they cost about $40 each. Four years later, the price has fallen to $12 or less and consumers can choose from a light spectrum that ranges from soft white, similar to an incandescent, to bright white, similar to fluorescent. Prices are still painful initially when compared with a buck a bulb for a 60-watt incandescent, but the energy savings and longevity of an LED can save about $125 per bulb over an incandescent, according to Consumer Reports. More on the story at Star Tribune
