light bulb ban set to take effect personal finance
Watt light bulbs in early 2013.
Their location will be halogen lamps, compact fluorescent bulbs, LED bulbs and high efficiency incandescent lamps-
This is just an ordinary incandescent lamp wrapped in gas.
All of this is much more expensive than conventional bulbs, but they save a lot of energy and costs in the long run. (
Some special incandescent lamps-such as three-way bulbs --
Can still be used. )
The end of the old light bulb may irritate some consumers who have already faced rising prices for various commodities.
But it will also hook up with tea party activists, as the ban is the result of the last stage of the government --
Standard of efficiency.

They are designed to solve the serious inefficiencies of old bulbs-
According to EPA, only 10% of the energy they use is converted into light, and the agency has a convenient fact sheet on these changes.
The rest is wasted as heat.
But the rules have attracted the attention of many circles. -
Mainly conservatives and libertarians who are dissatisfied with the government telling people what bulbs they can use.
They think that if the new one is really so good, people will buy it themselves without being forced to buy it.
The control room first tried to overturn the law.
When it all fails, Congress prevents the Department of Energy from spending money to implement the new regulations.
But bulb manufacturers still have no plans to produce old bulbs after the first year of the year, noting that the law remains the law and that the state attorney general has the right to enforce it.
\"We don\'t see any issues with compliance,\" said Kyle picol, vice president of government relations at the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, accounting for 95% of all bulb manufacturers in the United States.
The Manufacturers Association is a strong supporter of the new regulations, which they believe will cause the industry to become highly complex.

Experts point out how much money consumers can save by using more efficient bulbs.
The high-efficiency incandescent lamp costs about $1.
Each of the 50, in contrast, the old bulb is about 50 cents.
But they lasted twice as long as they were, using 28% less power.
With led, more space is saved. While a 40-
Watt LED sells for about $7. 50 --
From around $50 a few years ago ---
It consumes 85% less energy than conventional bulbs.
Home Depot National light bulb businessman Mark Warwick said that in a year, the LED will consume about $2 in power under normal circumstances (HD).
In contrast, incandescent lamps cost more than $7.
\"In two years, you will pay off the bulb,\" said Voykovik . \".
Because the LED bulb is expected to be used for at least 20 years-
This is all savings for the next 18 years.
In addition, the led does not bother many problems with the compact fluorescent bulb.
They turn on immediately, free of Mercury, and emit warm light similar to an incandescent lamp.
People with big electricity bills seem to notice.
Home Depot recently released a map showing who is buying more efficient bulbs.
While typical \"green\" places like San Francisco, Seattle and Boston rank top 10, so do Atlanta, Orlando and Miami.
Waco in Texas is also a popular market, with Home Depot due to local tax rebates and warm climate, with air conditioning pushing up electricity bills.
According to the EPA, about 12% of household electricity bills are used for lighting nationwide.
LED sales are growing rapidly at the same time-
Voykovik said that in the last two years of Home Depot, they have doubled every year ---
Most consumers still choose incandescent lamps.
He said the percentage of led sales is single digits.
The same is true at home (LOW)
More than 50% of sales are incandescent lamps, a spokeswoman said.
