This eHow article breaks down the difference between Halogen and LED in an easy to understand way. I would like to point out that the Philips EnduraLED is dimmable up to 10% of full light levels. This is true with most higher end bulbs. dimmable to 20% is really no longer true.
Katie Fehrenbacher over at GIGAom wrote an interesting article highlighting the struggle of striking a balance of natural gas and renewable energy to replace coal. In a perfect world it would be nice to go 100% Renewable in an instant, however reality dictates that natural gas could help ease us into 100% renewable in the future.
The Dallas lighting market is bright with new technology, new brands, and new looks! Visual Comfort lands a big brand designer alongside Barbara Barry and Thomas O’Brien. Hello Ralph Lauren!! The new line is plush full of thick color, wood texture, brass, polished nickel, all in a sophisticated nautical theme. Hand touches like the famous 1967 cast metal stamps on fixtures and zebra skin table lamps tell you it’s authentic Ralph.

Industrial Design and manufacturing company, Cerno, discusses the hold the LEDs are starting to take in society and what the marvelous LED has for us in the future. Personally, I don’t understand why we all have made the switch much sooner. Companies like Cerno are doing an excellent job making LED Lamps a must have for every home.

I know we just started 2011 .but 2012 is right around the corner! If not the End of the World, is it the End of the Incandescent Lamp?
There is no doubt the lighting industry is in the midst of a paradigm shift when both legislators and the public are demanding a more energy efficient product from the lighting industry. It’s been over a century since Edison, or Tesla depending on which book you read, invented the incandescent light bulb that we still use today.
