I normally buy my electrical stuff in bulk. Maybe my price was off a little.
Sorry for my error.
Orange box has them for $37 right now from Commercial Electric. You could get a few bucks off with a 10% coupon off that auction site, and buying a gift card at 7% off from plastic jungle dot com. I do this a lot for my Orange and Blue purchases. Works out to a total of about 16% off, so the cans would be about $31 before tax.
edit: found a dimmer list for the CREE bulbs too, incase anyone wanted to dim them.
Sounds like most people pay to much for the bulbs.
I buy my bulbs in a 100 pack and get a better deal.
But I think I will bogard my stash...
Are there no LED Bulbs made in the USA ?
If so what brand would that be ?
Looks like they all come over on the slow boat...
Our utility subsidizes CFL's to about 4 for $1.29! But mostly grocery stores only take them and hide them in a obscure aisle behind their 4 for 6$ bulbs. I have a long track and had three quartz halogens and 6 CFL's in it. the quartz guys have been dead for a year now.
No more 100 watt bulbs after Jan 1. If you want a great one, go to Graingers and buy 'railroad' signal lamps. Go forever. My grandparents had an old Edison 60 watt bulb high up in their hallway. They said it was installed in 1918, and was running still in 1957. Wish I had saved it.
Give LED's 3 years and they'll be 4 for $1.29
Look what happened to that SOLAR-bama fiasco. Turned out they couldn't make the panels at price to compete with chinese imports'
Actually they had a design that was unproven, and the world price of silicon tanked recently, like will happen to LED's soon due to overcapacity.
This Solar mega plant in San Luis Obispo, largest on earth being built is using US components and NOT taking a penny from our pockets. There is some hope.
If L E D lamps are so efficient, why do the recessed spotlamps have a big metal heat sink?
