Lighting Standards Get Revamped for 2012

Many of you have probably heard that beginning on January 1, 2012, a new law will go into effect “phasing out standard 100-watt incandescent bulbs”. This law was enacted to encourage the use of more energy-efficient lighting and other countries like Switzerland and Australia have already started their planned phase-outs. Some have criticized this new law stating that it puts a imposed cost increase on light bulbs for those who might not be able to afford them, but the new and improved energy-efficient light bulbs will save you the cost of replacing the bulbs earlier.

Yahoo! has put together some myths that have sprung up with this new law, so here’s a link to their story “The Truth About the New Light Bulb Law”.

We’d love to hear what you think about the new law?
