You may be thinking: “Okay, I get that the EISA 2007 was designed to reduce energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions… but is an incandescent phase out really going to make all that much of a difference?”
The short answer? Yes.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has estimated that this important legislation will save U.S. households as a whole about $15.8 billion per year on energy costs.
It will also eliminate approximately 87.5 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year from our atmosphere.
Keep that in mind as you start replacing those incandescent light bulbs!
