Price Increases on Linear Fluorescent and Compact Fluorescent lamps

I just realized how long it's been since I posted on the blog. I guess the good news is I've been so busy!

Here's some other news.... As a result of the Impact on Rare Earth Oxides and the extraordinary circumstances in the lighting industry, most lamp companies will have a large price increase in the upcoming months. Affected most are compact fluorescents with roughly a 25% price increase, as well as linear fluorescents with at 10% price increase for most companies. These increases WILL affect not only our stock cost but contracts, DSOs and SPAs as well. To learn more about the Rare Earth issue, go to

  1. LED light bulbs technology is making inroads in every market, with an LED bulb for any application. LEDs have a long list of advantages over incandescent and CFL lighting. A common complaint about compact fluorescents is the ramp-up time to full brightness. Instant-on CFLs provide light instantly, but still require time to reach full brightness. LED light bulbs provide full illumination from the moment they’re turned on. A lot of people taking Contractor Continuing Education will definitely agree with me.
