What a stupid remark. Why would i not want cheaper light bulbs or more effieciency? As I've stated on many other posts I have and have had for almost 8 years nothing but CFL bulbs in my house, To say i was an early adopter would be an understatement. As I've also stated in other post in which you took part I carry incandesent, halogen, CFL and LED bulbs in my truck all the time to demonstrate how well they light in different situations and how quickly they come to full power. I think I'd be willing ot take any bet you want to make about real life expereinces with the different types of bulbs,
I like LEDs but I can do math. My customers don't like LEDs at all because of the price and because when compared to CFLs their break even point is sometime in the far off future.I can buy a CFL for $1.80 every day, a CFL is $30.00. My CFL's have lasted about 7 years each so far so for the price of one LED I can buy 15 CFLs. 15 CFLs should last at least 105 years by my experience.
When LEDs come down in price to the point that they make sense I'll have them in my house.
