This delightful video is the first of three, and this one introduces GE’s energy smart® mini spiral® CFL. Below that I’ve included a graphic with a link to VERY COOL GE Comparison Charts for use when you replace your incandescent bulbs. Choose the type of light bulb you have now and find the type to buy that replaces it. By Amber Archangel
An energy smart® mini spiral® CFL that’s just the right size | GE Lighting
GE presents an energy smart® mini spiral® CFL that’s just the right size. It’s GE’s best spiral® CFL, ever! (Based on a GE 13W CFL T2 compared to 60W incandescent replacements.)

It’s brighter and lasts longer than its larger counterparts (based on a GE 13W CFL T2 compared to 60W incandescent replacements), and fits perfectly into general-purpose fixtures. And, it gives you the fastest payback in energy savings - in under six months (GE’s 13W CFL offers a faster payback than any other GE bulb technology).
Plus, you keep saving money on energy, since it lasts over 11 years (energy savings per 13W CFL bulb compared to a 60W incandescent. Based on 3 hours use per day, 11 cents per kilowatt hour. See package for details.) For out-of-this-world brightness that’s just the right size, this is GE’s best spiral CFL, ever.
New GE LED lighting is helping Las Vegas Sands Corp. take another key step toward curbing environmental impact at its leading resort and meeting properties.

Halogen bulbs in The Venetian|The Palazzo meeting rooms were replaced with more than 5,700 energy smart® BR30 LED lamps, a product of GE ecomagination℠. The 12-watt lamps, with a rated lifespan of 25,000 hours, will require fewer change outs and use 108 fewer watts per fixture than the 120-watt bulbs they replaced. This will reduce the resort’s annual electricity use by nearly 4.1 million kilowatt hours (kWh), saving more than $400,000 in annual lighting costs that can be applied to other initiatives demonstrating Las Vegas Sands’ environmental commitment.
Las Vegas Sands first invested in GE’s LED and compact fluorescent lighting (CFL) in 2010 at The Venetian|The Palazzo, where 7-watt PAR20 LED lamps and 10- and 15-watt CFL bulbs were installed in more than 7,000 guest suites.
As a result of GE’s more energy-efficient solutions, Las Vegas Sands has reduced its annual lighting spend by about $2 million overall including savings in suites and meeting spaces combined.
