A New York City electrical contractor is turning the old, noisy electric light bulb into a stylish, eco-friendly fixture.
Amber Jang, a Brooklyn-based electrical engineer, says she’s found an ingenious way to use the old-fashioned bulb as a tool for a much bigger problem.
“I wanted to bring back the old light bulb to the modern age,” Jang said.
“And, unfortunately, we have no electric light bulbs to be used anymore.”
The new bulb is made from glass, and it’s made from the same plastic that’s in many other household products like dish soap and toothpaste.
Jang said she found a local electrical company that could make the new light bulb, and she wanted to make it available to her community.
“So I made a contract to have them build a new lightbulb,” Jampong said.
She said the cost was less than $100.
“The labor was really cheap, and the labor is all done in China,” Jampsons company.
“It’s not as expensive as making a new electric lightbulbs, but it’s not that easy.”
She also said she’s already received some positive feedback.
“It’s been really helpful for my community,” she said.
Jampong also says the new lamp is a good way to get rid of outdated, dirty electric lights.
She said she hopes to use it to power a home and for other uses.
“If you are having a bad day and you want to have something bright and bright, just put a new bulb on it,” Jangs said.
