Did you know Canada.. 88% of households report that they are using at least one of four different types of energy-efficient lights: compact fluorescent lights, fluorescent tube lights, halogen lights or light-emitting diode lights.
Back in 2007 the federal government announced that it would ban the sale of inefficient incandescent light bulbs nation-wide by 2012 as part of a plan to cut down on emissions of greenhouse gases. By banning inefficient lighting, it is said we can reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by more than 6 million tonnes per year.
