It is nice to see "light" out of the tunnel...

"Incandescent tungsten-filament light bulbs face a global switch-off as governments push for energy efficient fluorescent lamps to become the standard. But the light could soon go out on those lamps too, now that UK materials scientists have discovered a cheaper way to produce LED bulbs, which are three times as efficient as fluorescent lamps."
As a good saving housewife that is the news I was looking for.

"the expense of the super-efficient technology has made the timescale uncertain. The researchers now say LED bulbs based on their new process could be commercially available within five years."

Five years is a lot of time and a lot of bills, but it is nice to see "light" out of the tunnel...
