Consumers will be able to choose between compact fluorescent lamps with the highest energy savings (consuming up to 75% less energy than incandescent lamps) or halogen lamps (with 25% and 50% less energy use).
Some of the requirements are:
Sept 2009: Frosted and clear 100 watt incandescent bulbs are not allowed.
Sept 2010: Clear 75 watt incandescent bulbs are not allowed.
Sept 2011: Clear 60 watt incandescent bulbs are not allowed.
Sept 2012: Clear 40 and 25 watt incandescent bulbs are not allowed.
Sept 2013: Stricter requirements for compact fluorescent lamps and LED lamps.
