Legislation Would Ban Incandescent Lightbulbs, Favor CFLs

California Assemblyman Lloyd Levine is expected to introduce legislation this week to make his state the first to ban incandescent lightbulbs, Reuters reports (via GrooveyGreen). The “How Many Legislators Does it Take to Change a Lightbulb Act” would ban incandescents by 2012 in favor of compact fluorescent lightbulbs.

California was the first state to mandate cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, targeting a 25 percent reduction in emissions by 2020.

Southern California Edison, an Edison International subsidiary and one of the state’s biggest utilities, runs a program that cuts the cost of a CFL by $1 to $2.50. In the past year, SCE has helped consumers buy 6 million CFLs, it said.

WalMart has set a goal of selling 100 million energy-efficient compact flourescents by 2008.
