Where are the 100w bulbs?

Where are the 100w bulbs?

Click to view full size image

They have been banned here in Kalifornia which ranks #48 of 50 states in overall freedom! This is in a Target store. They only sell 40w, 60w and 75w bulbs now. They do sell a 72w halogen replacement for 100w bulbs, but they cost $4.99 for a pack of two clear bulbs and none of it goes towards feeding the families of our American workers.

Luckily I have enough 100w bulbs to last 10 lifetimes, lol.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

I'm stocking up too. Hopefully Michigan will follow other states such as SC, Texas, and maybe one other that is declaring themselves "sovereign" from lighting legislation!

The people here are stockpiling on incandescents big time. Despite the law, CFL use has actually dropped around here in Simi Valley since last year. In my last check looking at the porch lights in the day while walking, only about 5% had CFLs.

Wow, that is interesting. I also like to perform the "porch light test". Actually about half of homes seem to be using CFLs here. Most people I talk to really don't mind CFLs and don't see any reason to stay with incandescent.

I like using preheat 2-piece CFLs in some fixtures, but I don't like spirals. I'm most concerned about the larger lamps where preheat CFLs can't compete. I'm stocking up on 100 watt lamps and especially 150PS25 lamps. 150PS25s are banned next year and I use them in a number of fixtures and floodlights. I have about twenty in stock and another ten on the way! I also use 200PS25 lamps that are subject to review if sales increase too much so I'm being careful with them as well.

Oh interesting, many people here say they didn't like the CFLs. They claim the electric bills only went down like 30 cents a month by going to all CFL, and that sometimes they don't last as long as advertised. Some complain about the color and the slow warm up rate, others don't notice a difference.

The 150PS25 lamp is an interesting lamp, they are seldom seen here. But I have a whole bunch of them, mostly clear Sylvanias, and a few frosted GE and Philips ones. Its actually a very old design going back to the Mazda C days of the 20s, but are still made because a few fixtures still can't use the smaller 150A21 lamps.
