Since today is Earth Day, let’s talk about some energy saving stuff. Philips recently announced the next generation of its Light Emitting Diode (LED), the Philips LED myVision range of light bulbs.
The LED myVision resemble a traditional frosted light bulb and fits easily into existing lamps with screw or bayonet cap sockets without the need for rewiring. This makes transition to the energy saving LED bulbs easy. LED lighting solutions contribute to significant energy savings. A 6W LED light bulb emits light with an output similar to a standard 40W incandescent bulb. The LED light bulb is also available in 9W and 9.5W that is similar in light output to a standard 60W incandescent bulb. The bulbs last approximately up to 15 years, while consuming less energy and effectively paying for themselves in 18 months.
To encourage Singaporeans to make the switch to LED bulbs, Philips is offering a 30-day money-back guarantee when you purchase the LED myVision light bulbs between 26 April and 1 July 2012. Philips has also created an LED calculator on its Singapore website to help consumers discover how much they can save when they switch from the traditional incandescent bulbs.
So if you are still using the old light bulbs, why not make the switch on Earth Day and do your part for the environment.
