The GE Energy Smart light bulbs not only save energy but last longer than the conventional Soft White incandescent bulbs while providing the same quality but saving you money. Using compact fluorescent technology (CFL), these bulbs last up to 8 times longer than the average bulb.
Since CFLs use 75% less energy, you can save money on energy bills. In a lifetime of a bulb you will save $38 in energy costs based on $0.10 per kWh using just 13 watts per bulb while producing the same light as a conventional 60 watt bulb. Each bulb is also rated for 8,000 hours which is equivalent to eight 60 watt conventional Soft White incandescent bulbs (or 5 years based on average consumer use of 4 hours per day at 120V).
CFLs have come a long way since the first generation CFLs and now come on instantly and flicker-free. You can even get dimmable CFLs and recessed lighting CFLs.
