Philips introduces a 60-watt equivalent LED bulb for $5

It’s finally here – the time has come to officially adopt LED bulbs in your home, with Philips announcing the cheapest available 60-watt equivalent LED bulb that costs only $4.97.

The new bulb – called the Philips LED A19 – is set to be launched in May. It uses only 8.5-watts to produce 60-watt equivalent output and has a 10-year life span. In other words, it will cost you about $1.02 per year and will save you about $62 a year.

“From the introduction of SlimStyle to our premium offerings that dim with a warm, familiar glow and this latest offering, Philips has continued to innovate and drive affordability and choice in the consumer LED market,” said Amy Huntington, president and CEO of Philips Lighting Americas.

“However, we also understand that quality LEDs should not be a luxury or something that only those that live in areas with robust utility rebate programs can afford.  With this bulb, consumers have a quality, day-to-day option for any area in their home that is as good for their wallet as it is for the environment.”

According to the company’s press release, the new LED bulb will be introduced in at The Home Depot in the beginning of  May in a two-for-one pack for the first 90 days, or while supplies last.

”We continue to look for ways to bring the latest innovation at great prices, and the new Philips LED A19 is an example of that,” said Joey Corona, Light Bulb Merchant, The Home Depot.
