Is it time to do away with rebates for CFL lighting?


Which one of the above bulbs do you think should have rebates?

According to the information from DOE, the energy efficiency program sponsors from across the United States promote about 1,250 individual product incentive and promotions for ENERGY STAR certified lighting products*. Out of an approximate $447 million budgeted in 2014 for these programs over 42% of the budget is still spent on a variety of CFL promotions and only 19% on LED lamps. Given the market feedback and how far LED lighting has come, it seems to me that there should be a swift, major and meaningful shift from CFL incentives towards LED incentives. That would be needed if we are to fully exploit the potential of LED lighting. *Source: Prepared by ICF International for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
