To be compliant with National Energy Legislation, the Department of Energy (DOE) issued new standards requiring manufacturers to replace less efficient incandescent light bulbs with more efficient options. The light bulbs affected by this federal legislation need to comply with mandated performance levels based on efficacy, and the light bulbs must meet new minimum Lumen per Watt (LPW) requirements. The first of these changes was the phaseout of general service light bulbs which went into effect on January 1, 2012 and began with the 100W A-type light bulb.
As of the “National Effective Date”, light bulb manufacturers are no longer permitted to produce or import light bulbs that do not meet efficiency requirements. However, these light bulbs can still be sold until their inventory is depleted.
