Lighting Science and Dixon Technologies India plan to sell a 60-watt equivalent LED bulb for less than $15. Given that similar bulbs now sell for about $40, this would represent a major pricing advance for LED lighting. LED chipmakers such as CREE and LEDS, who have struggled in 2011, are banking on higher lighting penetration rates to fuel growth.

    What was the reason I can't continue to buy my non-60-watt equivalent, i.e., the real thing for forty cents? Is it to save the planet? Who could be against that?

     

    Yeah, I know. Both the $40-dollar bulb and the $16-dollar bulb will last 10 times as long. Look me up when it sells for $2.50 and when I can dispose of it without getting a permit from the EPA.
