    We went solar on the house and I started investing in LED's. I went with CREE. Outstanding value. I am replacing the most used bulbs first and working down. For example, in the family room we have 2x4 bulb fixtures and two reading lights. All were 75 watt bulbs totaling 750 watts. Replaced with CREE equiv. 40 watts. I need to keep them all dimmed down. I am lighting the same space with probably about 60 watts in total above a 90% reduction in power usage. It shown on my meter and the savings are great. By the end of the summer I will be replacing all the bulbs, except some of the halogens with a weird base.

    Worth the investment.....
