The Light Goes Out on Incandescent.

Did you know that starting January 1, 2012, the federal government is extinguishing the use of incandescent light bulbs.Using compact fluorescent bulbs to save energy is a no-brainer—and 82 percent of Americans are now on board, according to a GE Lighting study. Our voluntary switch from incandescent light bulbs to CFLs issmart energy use—and the inefficient bulbs will get an extra kick out the door in January 2012, when 100-watt incandescent light bulbs will no longer be sold.

Natural Home Magazine states that “Under the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act, America will transition to more energy-efficient lighting, starting in 2012. Every year after that, incandescent light bulbs will see another cut: 75-watt bulbs will be phased out by 2013, and 40- and 60-watt bulbs by 2014.” Personally, I can handle the end of the 100- and 75-watt incandescents. These energy suckers are way too bright for my lifestyle. But I’ll arm wrestle anyone for the Phillips Pastel Pink bulbs… time to stock up at Home Depot and Lowe’s before the stash is gone for good!
