The company founded by Thomas Edison doesn’t seem to have much interest in selling old-fashioned lightbulbs – or much of anything for that matter – to everyday folks anymore.
After agreeing to jettison its century-old home-appliances division this month, General Electric Co. may now shed its legacy business that sells lighting to retail customers. While GE continues to make bulbs for consumers, it’s concentrating on technologically advanced industrial and commercial lighting products — like a street lamp that calls authorities when a gun is fired.
