Cree drops prices on LED bulbs, introduces 100-watt replacement

Cree's new LED bulb is as bright as an old-fashioned, 100-watt incandescent bulb.

If you’ve been thinking of making the plunge into LED lighting, Cree Inc. has some good news.

The lighting manufacturer just announced another drop in the prices of its LED light bulbs, available at Home Depot. It also introduced a bulb that’s as bright as a 100-watt incandescent bulb.

The price of Cree’s soft white, 60-watt-replacement bulb has declined from $12.97 to $9.97. The daylight version of that bulb dropped from $13.97 to $10.97.

Considering that bulb should last more than 20 years and use far less electricity than an old-fashioned incandescent bulb, you can expect it to pay for itself many times over.

Cree’s 75-watt-replacement bulbs have also gotten cheaper. The soft white version went from $19.97 to $15.97 and the daylight version, from $20.97 to $16.97.

Other bulbs have dropped in price, too. Check out its entire product line here.

The new 100-watt-replacement bulb is priced at $19.97 in soft white and $20.97 in daylight. The company says that’s the lowest priced bulb of that brightness.

Think changing a light bulb won’t make a big difference in your electric bill? Read my story on the savings a Jackson Township man experienced when he changed most of the bulbs in his house to LED.
