There has been a lot of coverage on this blog about the upcoming incandescent light bulb phaseout. Back in January, I wrote a post titled Are You One of the 36%?, pointing out that only 36% of Americans were aware of the upcoming phaseout. A whopping 64% had heard nothing about the legislation, and 80% did not know that traditional 100-watt light bulbs would no longer be available after January 1, 2012.
The Department of Energy has been hard at work spreading the word, and so have lighting manufacturers and retailers like us.
Well, a new poll from Osram Sylvania found that those efforts have paid off! A majority of Americans (55%) are now aware of the federal legislation.
However, according to the poll, most Americans are still hazy on the details.
Do you feel comfortable about the upcoming changes? Do you have questions? Ask away!
