Two Thirds of US Lamps Could Be Replaced

First, the government banned 100 watt incandescent light bulbs. Now, beginning in January, 2014, a ban on the manufacture or importing of lamp using 40W or 60W light bulbs is in effect.
According to research conducted by the US government agency, Energy Star, 70 per cent of the estimated 4 billion light fittings in the US continue to use inefficient lamps, so the impact of the phase out is anticipated to be significant.
Making big strides in the replacement of lamps is expected to be LED bulbs.
It’s estimated that if every house in the United States replaced just one incandescent lamp with an Energy Star alternative, it would be the equivalent of taking 800,000 vehicles off the road in terms of greenhouse gas emissions.
