The tide is turning.
Incandescent and even fluorescent lights are becoming a thing of the past. I have used the same Par 38 flood light in my public space for the last 7 years. It is a warm inviting light that is dimmable and really creates a wonderful atmosphere. I called my supplier to order some replacement bulbs and he said NO they are no longer making them and they have none in stock. He suggested a new LED dimmable light that is 3000k (this means warm light) so I tried it out. WOW, I was surprised how much it looks like an incandescent light!
So it is time to start thinking and changing to LED and what a cost savings. My par 38 was 65 Watts, now the new LED is only 13 Watts. There all different kinds of LED lights out there so check them out and save more energy.
According to this article in the Wall Street Journal all light bulbs will be mandated to be LEDs by the year 2020.
