Switch On to LED Lightbulbs Before September’s Halogen Ban

From the end of this month halogen lightbulbs are to be removed from the market across Europe, with households expected to switch to LED lights. According to Philips, the average UK household has 10 halogen bulbs and uses them for 2.7 hours a day. If that is correct, then hundreds of millions of halogens are going to have to be replaced. Halogen light bulbs could disappear from Australian stores within two years. Old-fashioned incandescent bulbs were the first to go, in 2009, and in 2016 the phased removal of halogens began in an EU-wide effort to improve energy efficiency and cut carbon emissions. https://www.theguardian.com/money/2018/aug/11/switch-led-light-bulbs-halogen-ban
