Osram Sylvania and Lowe's announced plans to introduce an LED replacement for America's most popular light bulb, the 60-watt incandescent. The Sylvania Ultra A-Line 12-watt LED bulb provides 810 lumens of light.
It also uses 80% less energy and lasts 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs, according to Danvers, Mass.-based Osram Sylvania.
"We have been making LEDs for over 30 years and are part of one of the world's largest LED producers. Osram Sylvania is proud to partner with Lowe's to bring this lighting technology to consumers," said Phil Rioux, general manager of Consumer Lighting LED Retrofits at Osram Sylvania. "Together, we're leading America's transition to LED lighting."
"Long-lasting, energy-efficient LED bulbs can help save consumers time, energy and money over the lifetime of the bulb," said Karena Bailey, Lowe's merchandising VP. "Lowe's is proud to introduce a 60-watt equivalent, 810-lumen LED bulb to provide consumers with the best energy-efficient lighting choices for their homes."
