Ontario Government Considers Light Bulb Ban

February 22, 2007

Ontario is considering a ban on incandescent light bulbs.

No one in Ontario should underestimate the importance of replacing standard bulbs with more energy-efficient ones, Ms. Broten added. By Premier Dalton McGuinty’s estimate, replacing every old-fashioned bulb with an energy-efficient one would allow the province to shut down one coal-fired power plant.

No one should underestimate the willingness of politicians to implement overreaching policies.
