There are many choices in energy efficient lighting. The most popular light bulbs available are halogen incandescents, compact fluorescent lamps (CFL’s) and light emitting diodes (LED’s). These bulbs are typically more expensive on the front end but over their lifetime they save you money because they use less electricity.
Beginning in 2012, the common light bulbs we use will be required to be about 25% more energy efficient to meet the new efficiency standards of the bipartisan Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA 2007). The Federal Trade Commission is also requiring a new label on light bulb packaging to help consumers easily compare energy efficient light bulbs. The new labels will make it easier to buy bulbs based on how much light they provide instead of how much energy, or watts, they use.
