Lowes to Carry Electron-Stimulated Luminescence Light Bulbs


Vu1 Corporation, a manufacturer of mercury-free, energy-efficient lighting technology recently announced that Lowes would carry the R30 Electron Stimulated Luminescence light bulb. The bulb is a direct replacement for the 65-watt incandescent flood bulb found in many recessed lighting fixtures.

Unlike compact florescent lights, the ESL is mercury-free, allowing for easy disposal and clean-up if damaged. According to the company: “ESL technology creates the same light quality as an incandescent but is up to 70% more energy efficient and lasts up to 11,000 hours.”

The ESL light bulbs will be available on starting December 1st and in retail stores in February 2012. It will retail for approximately $14.98.
