WASHINGTON – The Biden administration removes old-fashioned incandescent bulbs.
The goal is to accelerate the trend toward more efficient lighting, which officials say will save households, schools and businesses billions of dollars a year.
The regulations, finalized by the Department of Energy, will require manufacturers to sell energy-efficient lamps, which accelerates the long-standing practice of using compact fluorescent and LED lamps in the industry, which last 25-50 times longer than incandescent lamps.
The Trump administration has slowed the previous phasing out of incandescent bulbs, saying it is aimed at rules that make business difficult.
