The recent phase out of T12 lighting is sure to catch a lot of businesses off guard, especially now that the common lamps will no longer be imported or manufactured in the U.S.
"Right now inventories are still available, but as they deplete, replacement lamps will become extinct in the U.S. market faster than many anticipate," said Hunter Kasten of Worldwide Energy.
So, now what? Energy efficient fluorescent and LED replacement lamps are a better alternative. These lamps provide better light, create a substantial energy savings, and provide a long life up to 60,000 hours.
