LED bulbs are really cost effective and great light.

As talked about in the Green Lighting book, there need to be replacements to incandescent bulbs that are easy for people to switch over.  A simple A bulb in a lamp is the easiet start like one of my clients MSi Lighting has with 3M.

  1. Hi Seth,No doubt the Pharox 300 is a great LED lamp however, to compare it with a 60 Watt equivalent is a bit too much: the Parox output is 300Lumens, for a 60Watt replacement you need an output of 806Lumens. Again, a great lamp but a bit overspecified.Best regards,Jan
