Many people do not know the EISA (Energy Independence and Security Act) went into effect July 14th of 2012. The U.S. Department of Energy has banned many types of inefficient light bulbs, such as incandescent, halogen and fluorescent. T12’s, as well as “7” series T8’s, are being phased out and current users will soon have to make the switch. The EISA compliant options include some halogens- those that rate up to 30 % more efficient than traditional lamps, self-ballasted ceramic halide lamps, compact fluorescents (CFLS), and LED’s.
