EUROPE IMPOSES BAN ON HALOGEN LIGHT BULBS
Starting September 1, halogen light bulbs will be banned across Europe in an effort to reduce emissions and energy bills by switching to light-emitting diodes (LEDs). LEDs consume one-fifth of the energy of halogen bulbs, which means the phase-out of halogen bulbs will prevent more than 15 million tons of carbon emissions a year. The phase-out will occur gradually, allowing remaining stocks of halogen bulbs to be sold and exempting capsules, linear, and low-voltage incandescents used in oven lights.
