Creating good options to the Led bulb has been more difficult
2011-07-14
To encourage energy efficiency, Congress passed a law in 2007 mandating that Led bulb producing 100 watts worth of light meet specific efficacy goals, starting in 2012. Conventional light bulbs don't satisfy those goals, so the law will prohibit developing or importing them. The same rule will start take advantage of remaining bulbs 40 watts and above in 2014. Since January, California has already banned stores from restocking 100-watt incandescent bulbs.

Creating good options to the Led bulb has been more difficult than expected, especially for the the very bright 100-watt bulbs. Part of the problem is that these new bulbs have to suit for lamps and ceiling fixtures produced for more mature technology.

Compact fluorescents are probably the most apparent replacement, but they have drawbacks. They consist of only a tiny quantity of toxic mercury vapor, which could be released if they break or are improperly thrown away. They last lengthier than conventional bulbs but not as long as Led bulb.
