HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, October 27, 2009 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ INSIDE ILLUMINATING The electric light ELBOW GREASE A special touch PRODUCTS Bright ideas Shining a new light PAULINE PRIEST Shining a new light In 1809, an English chemist named Humphry Davy invented the electric light by connecting two wires to a battery and attaching a charcoal strip between the ends of the wires. The charged carbon glowed, making the first arc lamp. Some 50 years later, Thomas Edison improved on the idea by developing a long-lasting incandescent electric light which could be used in the home. It was a practical, safe and economical lighting system. Now, more than 125 years after Edison invented his incandescent electric light bulb, lighting is about to permanently move to a more environmentally friendly new system. The move to a greener lighting technology is expected to save more than four terrawatt hours of electricity -- equivalent to decommissioning one of Australia's smaller coal-fired power stations.
