- Halogen light bulbs to be banned from September – with fluorescent light bulbs to follow suit
- Shift to LED bulbs will cut 1.26 million tonnes of CO2. The equivalent of removing over half a million cars from UK roads
- New rules part of tighter energy efficiency standards for electrical appliances as the UK builds back greener. Helping save British consumers £75 a year on their energy bills
The government has announced plans today to end the sale of halogen light bulbs from September. This is part of the UK’s wider efforts to tackle climate change.
Legislation will include the removal of fluorescent lights from shelves from September 2023.
Currently, around 2 thirds of bulbs sold in Britain are LED lights. These make a considerable impact in improving the energy efficiency of the country’s buildings.
They last 5 times longer than traditional halogen lightbulbs and produce the same amount of light.
They use up to 80% less power.
The new legislation means retailers will no longer be able to sell the majority of halogen bulbs from 1 September.
