Philips To Replace Your Light Bulbs With LED


Philips will unveil the Philips EnduraLED A21 17-watt light bulb tomorrow at the LIGHTFAIR International tradeshow. The LED bulb has been designed to replace a 75-watt incandescent bulb, while reducing energy consumption by 80% and lasting 25 times longer.

The Philips EnduraLED A21 17-watt marks another important milestone in LED lighting technology for everyday use.

The EnduraLED A21 17-watt is the latest addition to Philips? portfolio of light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs that can replace traditional incandescents. These include 25W and 40W equivalents, as well as the ENERGY STAR-qualified Philips EnduraLED 12.5-watt bulb, the world?s first commercially-available 60-watt replacement.

The EnduraLED A21 17-watt, which uses the company?s high-power, next-generation LUXEON LEDs, has also been developed to meet or exceed ENERGY STAR qualifications for an LED-based replacement for the 75-watt incandescent light bulb. Those specifications call for delivering 1100 lumens with just 17-watts of electricity, a color temperature of 2700k, a color rendering index (CRI) of 80, and a rated life of 25,000 hours. The new bulb will be submitted to ENERGY STAR in the coming months for qualification testing.

Philips estimates that about 90 million 75-watt incandescent light bulbs are sold annually in the United States. Switching to this LED replacement has the potential to reduce energy use by 5,220 megawatts of electricity, a cost savings of approximately $630,000,000 annually. According to Philips estimates, switching to the EnduraLED 21 17-watt could also eliminate 3,255,205 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually, or the equivalent of removing nearly one million cars from the road.

As with all bulbs in the Philips LED lighting family, the new EnduraLED A21 17-watt has a rated life of 25 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb. Over its lifespan, the EnduraLED A21 17-watt could save a business or household about $160 per bulb. Available during the fourth quarter of 2011 in the US, the manufacturer?s suggested retail price for consumers has not yet been finalized but is expected to be in the range of $40 - $45.
