Stressed out about the lighting phase out?
Not everyone likes change, but sometimes, it can be good—in this case, really good—for you and the environment. On January 1st, 2012, the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) begins phasing out the iconic incandescent light bulbs we all know and love (halogens too) in favor of new, more energy efficient bulbs that comply with strict, government-mandated performance levels.
If you’re worried about what this means for you (or your wallet), EiKO has created this handy replacement guide to help you find the right energy efficient lighting options to save you money and keep you out of the dark. Just remember, there’s no time to waste—the phase out of general service bulbs starts with the 100W in 2012, followed by the 75W in 2013, and the 60W and 40W in 2014 (California’s phase-out began one year earlier in January, 2011).
