Philips LED Down To $1.97 Some Places, CREE LED Down To $6.97 At Home Depot

Before too long, I’m going to publish reviews of three CREE LED bulbs. But before getting to that I wanted to pass along a quick note regarding the rather big news that you can now get CREE LEDs in Home Depot for a mere $6.97. That’s for a bulb that is equivalent to a 60W incandescent soft white bulb. It’s also a dimmable bulb.

One of our readers actually passed this Home Depot LED link along just before Earth Day and noted that the price was down to $4.97. I guess that was an Earth Day special, but $6.97 is still super low. With a bulb that uses 85% less energy, your “payback time” is going to be quick. And it comes with a 10-year warranty.

And this isn’t even as low as it goes. Another story we’ve been meaning to cover for a while is that the Philips SlimStyle LED bulb (which is in the middle of our studio apartment), has achieved ENERGY STAR certification, which means that it can qualify for Energy Efficiency Program rebates nationwide. Efficiency Maine customers, for example, can get it for as little as $1.97!

The Philips SlimStyle again cuts energy use by about 85%. It will save consumers $136 in electricity costs alone over its lifetime, a Philips rep told me in an email. Of course, that all depends on what type of bulb you’re replacing, though. If you’re replacing a CREE 60W-equivalent LED, I guess your savings are more like $5.

If used 3 hours a day, 7 days a week, Lasts over 22 YEARS!  :o 

Consumers in states such as CT, HI, IN, MA, ME, MI, NJ, NV, RI, UT, and WA, as well as Washington, DC, could see pricing as low as $3.97 on shelf at Home Depot. You can check out a full listing of the 600 utilities Philips has worked with to offer rebates on its ENERGY STAR–certified bulbs if you want more info.

The age of incandescents is obviously over, but I think the age of CFLs is on its way out as well. Your thoughts?
