Goodbye Incandescent – Hello….??

I, Dr. Bulb, am often asked which technology I believe will emerge victorious now that the ban on incandescent bulbs has taken effect. Will it be LED? CFL? Which will replace the ubiquitous 60-watt incandescent bulb?

It’s not a question with a clear-cut answer, but there are those (including yours truly) that have been discussing the various options, along with their pros and cons, for some time now. For example, if you’re looking for a good primer on the topic, there is an article on Slate.com that does a good job.

So, which do you feel is the better solution? Is there one that fits your needs better than the others? The answers just aren’t as simple as they used to be.

Keep your eyes on this space for further advice and developments.
