Legislating general service incandescent bulbs

  

January 1, 2012 was the end of manufacturing and importation of the 100 watt general service incandescent light bulb.

September 1st, 2012. Funding was released to enforce the light bulb bans.

January 1, 2013 was the end date for manufacturing and importation of the 75 watt general service incandescent light bulb.

January 1, 2014 was the end date for manufacturing and importation of the 40 and 60 watt general service incandescent bulbs. 

The above bulbs can still be sold and used, as long as supplies last, but they can no longer be manufactured or imported after the noted dates.

 

TWO LIGHT BULB COMPANIES HERE IN THE U.S.A. ARE MANUFACTURING FEDERALLY APPROVED 10,000 HOUR ROUGH SERVICE INCANDESCENT BULBS.

THE "ROUGH SERVICE" LIGHT BULB IS EXEMPTED IN THE FEDERAL LEGISLATION THAT ESSENTIALLY "BANS" THE GENERAL SERVICE INCANDESCENT LIGHT BULB. HOWEVER, TO BE MANUFACTURED, "ROUGH SERVICE" BULBS MUST MEET NEW U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY STANDARDS.

THESE BULBS ARE MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT, LONGER LASTING AND COST-EFFECTIVE. THEY ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE, USE NO MERCURY, LEAD OR ARSENIC AND CAN BE USED IN HOME, BUSINESS AND TYPICAL ROUGH SERVICE APPLICATIONS.
