Incandescent Bulbs Phasing Out In 2014


 The phaseout of the traditional 40- and 60-watt light bulbs is part of a 2007 Energy Efficiency Law signed by George W. Bush.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- America's most popular light bulbs are about to become much harder to find.

Incandescent light bulbs start phasing out tomorrow.

American companies will no longer be able to manufacture or import the glass bulbs, which use heated wires to generate light.

The phaseout of the traditional 40- and 60-watt light bulbs is part of a 2007 Energy Efficiency Law signed by George W. Bush.

Instead of incandescents, consumers will find more efficient LED, halogen, or fluorescent bulbs.
