Question about Electrical Supplies
If the saver bulbs are of Fluorescent lamps type, they can not go to 0 even to 30% (depending on mains voltage: for 240V mains the range is bigger), because they need minimal voltage of about 80-100 V in order to keep the electrical arc. They vary the light level, but if by a normal dimmer give them less than about 80-100 V (max value), they will go out.
You have about 80% iconomy(compared to normal incadescent lamps) at rated voltage and it can be rased to 90 - 92% at minimum light, but not more.
You should use a special diimer if you wish to use the whole range for dimming.
