General Electric announced it will be releasing a unique new light bulb on Earth Day.
Apparently, “hybrid” will not just be all about cars anymore.
This light bulb is a combination halogen-compact fluorescent (CFL) built inside a glass bulb shaped like a traditional incandescent. GE is calling it a hybrid-halogen CFL, and advertising it as “three bulbs in one.”
The instant brightness factor makes our new hybrid halogen-CFL more versatile than other CFLs. Simply flip that light switch and it’s at your service – immediately.” Kristin Gibbs, general manager of consumer marketing, GE Lighting
The light bulb will be available in GE Energy Smart, Soft White, and Reveal bulbs, price between $5.99 and $9.99. Add it to the list of replacement contenders for the standard incandescent light bulb, which will be phased out beginning January 1, 2012.
