New standards for energy-efficient alternatives to 75W and 100W incandescent light bulbs came into force on Monday.
After Jan. 1, consumers will be able to find a range of light bulb options on store shelves, including both efficient light bulb options and incandescent light bulbs.
B.C. retailers can continue to carry the old incandescent 75 and 100W bulbs until their stock runs out. Other wattages will remain available to stock on shelves.
