It may be time to declare a winner — or at least a clear leader — in the race to develop the most energy-efficient light bulb. Up until recently, we used pretty much the same type of light bulb in our lamps and light fixtures that Thomas Edison patented in 1880. But those incandescent bulbs are energy wasters. They require a lot of electricity to produce light. Plus, they give off heat, resulting in higher air conditioning costs. Then along came compact fluorescent lights (CFL) and light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs, which use 70 to 90 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs to produce the same amount of light.
