Video showing a light bulb box with the Lighting Facts Label on the side. Text reading, 'Looking for lightbulbs? Look for lumens' appears onscreen. The Lighting Facts Label is then enlarged and the brightness of 800 lumens is highlighted. A yellow arrow points from the label to a wedge showing that a bulb with about 800 lumens replaces a 60-watt traditional incandescent bulb. Text below reads, 'Replacing a 60-watt bulb? Look for one with about 800 lumens. Lumens: the new way to shop for lights.' In addition, the Lighting Facts Label also shows that the estimated yearly energy cost is $1.57, based on three hours per day and 11 cents per kilowatt-hour. Cost depends on rates and use. The life based on three hours use per day is 9 years. The wedge shows that a bulb with about 450 replaces a 40-watt traditional incandescent, one with about 1100 lumens replaces a 75-watt bulb, and a bulb with about 1600 lumens replaces a 100-watt bulb.
