Energy Efficient Lighting Solutions: A Good Idea!
By EcoAlign, March 30, 2011
Americans have much greater levels of support for energy efficient lighting than anticipated. Despite the attempts to roll back the legislation that phases-out the traditional but inefficient incandescent light bulbs, two-thirds of the consumers feel that phasing out and replacing them with energy efficient lighting solutions is a good idea.
However, Sixty percent of Americans were unaware of a federal law requiring a 28 percent improvement in lighting efficiency, effectively phasing out most traditional incandescent lamps.
EcoPinion No. 10 tests 1,000 consumer’s perceptions and attitudes with regard to more energy efficient residential lighting - such as compact fluorescent lights (CFL) and light emitting diodes (LED) - as compared to traditional incandescent light bulbs.
