There will be more 100-watt incandescent bulbs in commerce from Wednesday, July 1. They leave room for low-consumption models.
From 1 July, we should no longer find incandescent to a higher power or equal to 100 W in the trade. The France launched a program of removal of this type of lamps that will gradually give way to low-energy light bulbs.
End 2012, filament bulbs will have experienced different stages: the withdrawal of more than 75 W lamps is scheduled for the end of the year, those 60 w will disappear on June 30, 2010, those of 40 W on August 31, 2011, and those of 25 W December 31, 2012. An agreement on the timetable for withdrawal was signed in October 2008 between the Department of ecology, the federations of commerce, the eco-agency partnership, EDF and Ademe.
The environment and control of energy (Ademe) Agency estimated that the replacement of incandescent lamps low consumption allow France to save 6 terawatt-hours of electricity by 2016, or the equivalent of twice the electricity of the inhabitants of Paris. Lighting in the residential sector accounts for 9% of the electricity bill of french households: each has an average of 22 lamps, buy 3 times a year and consumes about 350 kWh per year for its lighting.
Five to eight times more expensive to buy, the lamps low consumption (See type of LED bulbs on businessjust) need four to five times less energy than filament bulbs and last six to ten times longer (8000 hours). However, unlike conventional bulbs – which must be thrown in the trash-ordinary, the LBC must be collected in the bins available at retailers because they often contain mercury (an average of 3 mg per bulb). This is to avoid harmful emissions to the environment. The LBC are recyclable at 93%, says Ademe.
