Banning the bulb:  A bright idea

  • 2011 has brought the beginning of the end for the incandescent light bulb.  Following the lead of several other provinces, with many to follow, B.C. has applied a prohibition preventing retailers from ordering 75 and 100 watt incandescent bulbs.  As stock runs out, they will be replaced with CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lamp).  CFLs use one-third or less the energy of incandescent bulbs, and last between eight and fifteen times longer.
