edison\'s light bulb will begin to fade in 3 years
NEW YORK - Bulb manufacturers have transformed some factories, closed other factories, and invested a lot of money in preparation for the technological changes they think will completely change the industry. However, incandescent lamps, which have remained largely unchanged for more than a century, are about to go out of date, a fact that the vast majority of the public has disappeared. The phase- As part of the energy bill signed in 2007, it began three years later. They will be eliminated by the light. LEDs or LEDs made of semiconductors and compact fluorescent bulbs are known for their twisted tubular shapes. For example, the new regulation requires a typical 100- The Watt bulb is replaced by a 72 watt bulb that provides the same amount of light. Osram siwania, one of the world\'s largest bulb producers, commissioned a survey to find out if the public agreed and found that 80% of Americans did not know about the bulb, as we know, we are on our way out. Major bulb manufacturers and retailers will meet in Dallas this week to find ways to incorporate led into more products, but have been in transition mode for years. Lighting plants in Brazil, Mexico and the United States have been closed and Osram siwania is revising existing plants. The EU will begin phasing out incandescent lamps in September. Professional incandescent lamp For example, used in electrical appliances Will be provided on a limited basis. The cost of switching to led and compact fluorescent lamps may shock some consumers. Royal Philips Electronics launched a series of LEDs in Europe last year for around $90. GE\'s LED bulbs cost about $35 to $40. President and CEO of Osram siwania, Charlie gerabek, said prices would fall as technology advances. The new light bulb ultimately pays off economically and efficiently. Americans keep about 73 million lights a day for between 4 and 12 hours, and about 28 million are powered by energy Efficient bulbs, according to the Department of Energy. The new lighting standard is coming online, and consumers are expected to reduce their annual electricity bill by $13 billion in 2020. More than 120 years ago, the incandescent lamp invented by Thomas Edison lit the room by heating wire in a vacuum, but wasted a lot of heat. Compact fluorescent bulbs contain gases that react with electricity to produce invisible UV rays. When the lamp shines on the material inside the bulb, it is converted into a normal lamp. The LEDs emit very little heat and are about 40% more efficient and can last more than 50,000 hours.
