What does 60 watts mean?

Stimpy, the power rating tells you the rate at which the device consumes energy. So yes, a 60-Watt bulb will consume 60W*h or 0.06kWh of electricity in one hour. Watt-hours measure energy consumption.

Regarding this, what does the wattage of a light bulb mean?

lumens = brightness. watts = energy. Lumens measure brightness. A standard 60-watt incandescent bulb, for example, produces about 800 lumens of light. By comparison, a CFL bulb produces that same 800 lumens using less than 15 watts.

What are watts in a light bulb?

Standard 100-watt bulbs produce about 1600 lumens. Watts - the amount of energy a light bulb uses. The lower the watts, the lower the electric bill. CFLs and LEDs have a lower wattage than incandescent bulbs, but emit the same light output.
