GE Reveals New Reveal® Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb

Posted by Blair Eisenbraun on Aug 19, 2010

GE has released glass-covered compact fluorescent versions of its Reveal® line of light bulbs, which have been solely incandescent for a long time.

GE Reveals New Reveal® Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb
GE's Reveal® incandescent light bulbs have been marketed as providing "clean, beautiful light", and they've been successful.  Now GE has revealed their new glass-covered compact fluorescent versions of the Reveal® line.  These new CFLs sport a frosted glass covering (the ballast is also covered) that almost perfectly disguises compact fluorescents as incandescents.  Available in 9-watt, 15-watt, and 20-watt bulbs, these new CFLs do indeed provide "clean, beautiful light".

Energy Efficient Light Bulbs

Although the Reveal® compact fluorescent light bulbs are crafted to look exactly like a regular incandescent light bulb, the comparisons end there.  These energy efficient light bulbs break away from the inefficiency of incandescent light bulbs with around 75% energy savings.  Depending on your wattage choice and price of electricity, you can save around $24 to $44 in electricity over the life of a Reveal® CFL.  Along with energy efficiency these bulbs boast long life up to eight times longer (using one four hours a day would net you a five year life span for the bulb based on 8000 hour life) than that of standard incandescent light bulbs.

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs

The design of these compact fluorescent light bulbs is pretty cool.  They've got the same basic egg shape as incandescents thanks to an outer glass covering which envelopes the curled compact fluorescent tubes and the mini ballast at the base.  These light bulbs will most likely fool most people into thinking they're incandescents except under close scrutiny.  GE expects the Reveal® CFL to appeal to homeowners who want the color, energy savings, and long-life performance of a compact fluorescent in the shape, size, and fit of a standard incandescent light bulb.
 
The release of GE's Reveal® compact fluorescent light bulbs is just one way the company is preparing for the EPACT legislation of 2007, which will soon begin phasing out inefficient incandescent light bulbs.  According to a study commissioned by GE, "three out of four consumers are not aware of this pending legislation.  GE is committed to offering education and access to energy efficient alternatives".
