I like the potential energy savings and long life (less maintenance cost) of LED lights in all outdoor decorative lighting, as well as traffic control lights, etc. But it troubles me that govt begins thoughts of mandating the use of these lights in homes before more development to correct the color rendering problems with them. Also, in cold climates, energy use of incandescents not only is additive to the home heating, but in the case of someone heating with fuel oil, some of that heat load is being transferred to coal, wind, and hydro power instead. The use of LED lights means you put up with lousy color rendering, while burning more fuel oil - worth their cost?
