Paul Hovnanian P.E. laid this down on his screen :
I think is what some are calling low wattage CFLs.
I have read that 12 watt/hours is below the minimum resolution of some
power tarriff meters.
The meter doesn't turn if a single lamp is the only load, so they call
it a "zero" watt lamp.
It's really nothing but some misleading hype to flog off CF Lamps.
incandecent lamps of very low wattage rating( 5 W to 10 W) are
generally reffered to as the zero watt bulbs in India, generally in
the rural areas.the lamps are generally used for the decorative
purposes or where very low level of lumination is required. they are
called the zero watt lamps because they consume very low amount of
electrical power whose effect on electric bill is nearly negligible.
