Massachusetts-based lighting company Osram Sylvania announced that it would be expanding it’s lineup of LED light bulbs. This month, Lowe’s will start stocking the seven new bulbs.
Among the company’s new LED bulb offerings are the ones meant to replace 40- and 60-watt incandescent bulbs. The 60-watt LED bulb puts out the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent with 8.5 watts of electricity.
"Up until this point, consumers have been forced to compromise on the appearance of their light bulb in order to receive the long life and energy savings associated with LED technology," said Lowe’s merchandising VP lighting, Dean Kochalka. "Our new line of 60-watt and 40-watt replacement bulbs gives consumers the best of light bulb design and energy efficiency, providing a perfect solution for replacing traditional light bulbs in the home."
Some of the new products expand the company’s soft white and natural daylight light bulb offerings with LEDs that emit as much light as 40-, 60- and 70-watt incandescent bulbs. Additionally, Osram Sylvania is releasing dimmable LED bulbs in 40-, 60. 75- and 100-watt varieties.
According to Osram Sylvania’s VP retail sales, Matt McCarron, “these new LED light bulbs come at a perfect time and offer what consumers want most from lighting -- brightness, energy savings and a long life -- that is all available in the familiar shape of the incandescent bulbs they replace."
