Effective July 14, 2012, production of most T12 florescent lamps will be phased out, as mandated by the 2009 Department of Energy General Service Lamp legislation.
Many of the standard fluorescent lights, which is an estimated 500 million T12 tubes in thousands of buildings will need to be replaced starting in July 2012. The Department of Energy (DOE) regulations will eliminate the most common T12 tubes. It is estimated that the replacement of 500 million T12 tubes would produce an annual saving of $10 Billion in electricity costs nationwide. Below is the phase out period. Let Brite LED Lighting assist you with your replacement bulbs.
