Lighting Efficiency Standards in the Balance

Congress is likely to decide today or tomorrow whether to gut new lighting efficiency standards scheduled to take place January 1.  Along with other consumer groups, we’ve asked Congress to preserve the standards and help consumers tame their utility bills.  See our letterpress release, and fact sheet for additional information.  The standards have helped usher in a new era of efficient lighting with lots of consumer choices that save energy and money.
