T5 will become the "go to bulb" when T12 are banned in July 2012. Cheaper to do a retrofit with a T12 to T5 step down - http://www.lumello w.com/t5-retrofit- kits/ Yes, I am partial to the product. With 500 million T12 fixtures in the US, the step down to T5's can save anywhere from 30% to 50% on commercial lighting costs!!!  (Mar 12, 2012 | post #2)

An unfortunate blow to Fisker automotive, the DOE's Green grants, and Washington environmental policy. Sad to hear. Although I did see a Fisker Karma zipping around Coconut Grove the other day... so clearly this isn't endemic of all Karma's.  (Mar 12, 2012 | post #1)

Opinion

Federal law will change light bulbs

Classic trade off - do you want mercury or do you want to waste more energy created by burning coal? Based purely on my opinion, and nothing else I believe CFLs are the better choice for now, at least until LEDs become cheaper. Commercial fluorescent lighting is next on the chopping block, with T12 tubes going the way of the dinosaurs. Again, LED tube lighting is still a bit too expensive. In the case of T12 lighting the best bet is to do a retrofit with a product like Lumellow's - http://www.lumello w.com/t5-retrofit- kits/  (Mar 12, 2012 | post #66)

Rush Limbaugh attack on Sandra Fluke could hurt GOP

What I found interesting in the general debate is that everyone is screaming at everyone else about the name calling, but ummmm isn't it good that someone actually cares about birth control?  (Mar 10, 2012 | post #525)

Great idea. Not to mention the not so great light quality. I much prefer LEDs in my home. For commercial application you can swap out from the scary T12 and retrofit in to T5's which have a much nicer light, lower energy use and don't have that terrible flicker - checkout http://www.lumello w.com for a whole bunch of info on the topic.  (Mar 9, 2012 | post #18)

Rush needs to be put away and taken out of the debate. Hopefully this will get him out of the public eye permanently!!!  (Mar 9, 2012 | post #363)
