Six years ago, President Bush signed a federal energy bill,
Waste light bulbs on a staggered schedule to ensure a smooth and successful transition to a more efficient bulb and ultimately save Americans $13 billion in annual energy bills.
All major lighting companies including GE, Philips and Sylvania support these changes and upgrade the supply chain to produce energysavings bulbs.
In January 1, when the next chapter began, the old, inefficient 40-and 60-
More than half of the watt bulbs in the market can no longer be produced or imported into the United States.
This is done recently from the old 100-and 75-
In the past two years, Watt incandescent lamps have gone through the process very smoothly because there are so many better bulbs
Perform the available options.
Consumers now have three main types of bulbs to choose from: New and improved incandescent lamps and CFLs that save 28% of their energy (
Compact fluorescent lamp)and LEDs (light-LEDs
This saves at least 75% of the energy and lasts longer. (
You can see how the inside of the theLED bulb on the right works, it only takes 9.
5 W, produce the same light as anold 60watt bulb. )
In fact, these standards that need to improve efficiency have brought in 100-
Plus the year when Edison invented the light bulb!
It is clear that incandescent lamps did not disappear at the beginning of this year-they just became more efficient.
Technological advances-like the GE 43W bulb below replacing 60-
Watt incandescent lamps-have saved billions of dollars in energy bills for homeowners and businesses.
The new standard will eventually save power from 30 large coal
Power plants are burned every year-and related pollution that harms our health and causes climate change.
At the same time, these standards create new jobs in the United States to create efficient lighting, which helps to boost our economy.
The new bulb uses less power to send out the same amount of light.
Therefore, consumers will no longer buy bulbs based solely on power (expressed in Watt), but on light output expressed in lumens.
In the short term, the manufacturer includes claims such as \"replacement of 60w bulbs\" or \"13 w = 60 w\" for a period of 13-12 years

The chart in the NRDC bulb purchase guide below provides consumers with an easy way to choose the bulb they want.
For example, a new incandescent lamp replacing the old 60-1 is sometimes called a halogen lamp
W bulb, only 43 W.
Some other things to know when buying a new bulb: The bottom line is that the transition from our country to a more efficient bulb is in progress, from 40-and 60-
There should be no problem with watt bulbs.
Manufacturers and retailers are already moving and we have a lot of energy right now
The savings bulbs on the shelves are ready for each outlet in the home.
