Prices spiral downward for a bright outlook We all know that regardless of the increased upfront costs of LED bulbs, the impending return on investment results in hundreds of dollars of savings over the course of just one of these bulb’s lifespan. However, with the rapidly evolving technological advancements over the past few years converging with surging consumer demand, the plummeting prices are making it even easier to upgrade to these much superior bulbs. In fact, just four years ago, the worldwide Average Selling Price (ASP) for 40W equiv. LED bulbs was over $40, and recently, from April to May of this year, the ASP declined another 3.2 percent, all the way down to $14.20. Additionally, the ASP for 60W equiv. LED bulbs dipped slightly by 3.6 percent from April to May, all the way down to $19.50. (source: LEDinside.com) With supply keeping up with demand and costs being driven down, the DOE projects that LED lighting will represent 36% of all lighting sold by 2020 and 74% by 2030, resulting in approximately $30 billion in savings (at today’s prices)! Furthermore, the U.S. Energy Information Association (EIA) projects that prices will dip so far by 2020 that they will be close to rivaling incandescent and CFL bulbs, resulting in the inevitable extinction of incandescent bulbs once and for all. Until then, state-by-state rebates continue to play a major part in making the upgrade more cost-effective in the short-term. If you’re interested in learning what options are available to you, please feel free to stop by or call your local Batteries Plus Bulbs store. We can articulate the differences between bulbs, advise you on current rebates to take advantage of and help you start saving money on your energy bill right away!
