DOE Announced a Final Determination for Incandescent Light Bulbs

On September 5, 2019 DOE proposed a determination that the existing standards for general service incandescent lamps (GSILs) do not need to be amended. After considering data and a wide range of public comments, today DOE is announcing its final determination that the existing standards for GSILs will not be amended because stricter standards are not economically justified. For more information: https://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2019/12/f70/gsil_final_rule.pdf  DOE expects that progress to continue in the absence of more stringent standards for GSILs. LED bulbs and luminaires are anticipated to hold the vast majority of lighting installations by 2035.
