GE Brightens LED’s Future | Sustainable Life Media

GE Brightens LED’s Future | Sustainable Life Media: "April 9, 2010 – General Electric has revealed its latest LED replacement for the standard 40 watt incandescent bulb, due out in late 2010 or early 2011. It is expected to consume just 9 watts of electricity, provide a 77% energy savings and last more than 25 times longer than its incandescent cousin.

Light emitting diodes (LED’s) are the latest technology to emerge in the energy-efficient lighting market, a space that has recently been dominated by compact fluorescents (CFL’s). What was holding LED’s back from competing with CFL’s until now was their uni-directional light output. This made them ideal for specific applications such as flashlights, where users would manually direct the light in the direction they wanted the focus. The new GE Energy Smart LED actually shines in all directions"
