AUSTIN – The Texas Public Policy Foundation has published a policy brief, Light Bulbs and Liberty, discussing how the traditional light bulb will be phasing out as of January 1, 2012.

In 2007, the U.S. Congress passed the Energy and Security Act that created energy efficiency standards for lighting, including household lighting, ending the ability for American consumers to purchase the incandescent light bulbs in use for the last 100 years. It will also become a federal crime to sell the traditional light bulbs.

However, the Texas Legislature took matters in their own hands by passing House Bill 2510, recently signed by Gov. Perry. HB 2510 will go into effect January 1, 2012, the same day the Federal Energy and Security Act is slated to phase out the 100 watt light bulb. HB 2510 basically states that if an incandescent light bulb is created in Texas and used in Texas, the Texas Legislature says that the Energy and Security Act of 2007 does not apply, and Texans can continue using the light bulbs.

“HB 2510 prevents the government from interfering with the marketplace, overriding consumer choice, and increasing consumer cost,” said Ryan Brannan Center for Economic Freedom policy analyst. “The light bulb ban represents a microcosm of the larger problem with energy efficiency measures that are promulgated with ever increasing upfront costs to consumers with only speculative long-run returns.”

The Texas Public Policy Foundation is a non-profit free-market research institute based in Austin.
