Environmental Groups in the US Sue the Government over Light Bulb Standard Rollback

Environmental Groups in the U.S. filed a lawsuit against the U.S. DOE for challenging the recent rollback of energy-saving light bulb standard. In September 2019, the Trump’s administration withdrew the Obama’s decision in 2017 which added additional light bulb types to the lighting efficiency standard. By doing so, it is analyzed by American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) that the U.S. consumer will spend US$ 15 billion on electricity annually and the environmental impact will be intensified with more carbon emission. The Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) lawsuits contend the Trump administration’s DOE acted illegally in reversing its 2-year-old rules expanding the types of bulbs required to become more energy efficient as of Jan. 1, 2020, under a law passed by Congress in 2007. https://www.ledinside.com/
