75 Watt Light Bulbs Phased Out

(Image 1)

The New Year means lights out for 75-watt light bulbs. As of January 1st, under federal law, 75-watt incandescent bulbs can no longer be produced or imported. Retailers can still sell existing stock until they run out.

The government is gradually phasing out incandescent bulbs in favor of more energy-efficient, LEDs halogens or compact fluorescent bulbs. 

One hundred watt incandescent bulbs were retired last year.  Traditional 60 and 40-watt bulbs will be phased out in 2014.
