Incandescent Light Bulb Ban Pushed Back

Comments Off on Incandescent Light Bulb Ban Pushed Back

A Congressional spending deal made late last night includes a provision that prevents the Department of Energy from enforcing the incandescent light bulb ban set to go in effect in January for another nine months. The first phase of the ban , which still remains on the books but just can’t be enforced, includes higher efficiency standards for 100-watt bulbs.  By the end 2014, all incandescents will be phased out.  According to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, many American light bulb makers had already started investing money on making the change from incandescents to more efficient bulbs like halogen, CFLs and LEDs and this delay may now cause them to lose money to foreign competitors still selling the cheaper bulbs. The delay in enforcement will end on September 30, 2012 at the end of the government’s fiscal year when hopefully the legislation will be able to go into effect. via Chicago Tribune
