Incandescent light bulbs are back!
Congress’ ban on manufacturing traditional, incandescent light bulbs (which was set to go into effect on January 1st) has been repealed – what that means for you and me is that we can continue to buy the cheaper-yet-less-efficient bulbs in lieu of expensive-but-energy-efficient fluorescent light bulbs. I don’t know about you but I like having that choice.
But here’s the big question – even though manufacturers can continue to produce incandescent bulbs, will they? The repeal comes just weeks before the ban was scheduled to go into effect, meaning manufacturers have already spent a ton of cash re-tooling their production lines to manufacture energy-efficient bulbs.
I guess only time will tell whether the incandescent bulb will survive.
