The traditional light bulb will no longer be available by January 2014.

The Government will stop all production, import and sales of the bulbs by that date as part of efforts to save power.

Traditional light bulbs, also called incandescent light bulbs, are considered less energy-efficient and, as a result, not as environmentally-friendly as compact fluorescent lamps, fluorescent tubes and light-emitting diodes.

Power, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin, who announced this yesterday, said the move to stop the use of these bulbs would help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 732,000 tonnes a year.

“The shift to more energy-efficient bulbs will help reduce energy usage in the country by 1,074 gigawatts a year. This is 1% of the total current usage,” he told a press conference after launching his ministry-level Chinese New Year celebrations.

Are incandescent light bulbs really that bad?
