"Upfront cost is one of the most disconcerting things to consumers, and they're overwhelmingly confused by the assortment of the bulbs that are available," according to Adam Borut, co-founder and president of Eco Hatchery, an energy efficiency and sustainability software and services firm that developed a light bulb finder app. He says that switching to the new generation of light bulbs represents the easiest and fastest payback to consumers looking to save money and energy.
