SYLVANIA Socket Survey Reports Increased Awareness of Impending Light Bulb Ban

Public awareness of the federal phase out of incandescent light bulbs is growing, according to the third annual SYLVANIA Socket Survey. The results showed that 36 percent of those surveyed said they were aware that Congress passed legislation in 2007 that will phase out most traditional bulbs by 2014. That’s an increase from 26 percent in 2009 and 21 percent in 2008. However, just 19 percent said they know that traditional 100-watt bulbs will no longer be sold in the U.S after January 1, 2012

The SYLVANIA Socket Survey is the only nationwide measure of public attitudes about efficient lighting and awareness regarding the U.S. phase-out of inefficient incandescent light bulbs.
