Why 60W light bulbs are going away…soon

Manufacturers will cease making traditional 40- and 60-watt light bulbs — the most popular in the country — at the start of 2014. This comes after the controversial phasing out of incandescent 75 and 100-watt light bulbs at the beginning of 2013. In their place will be halogen bulbs, compact fluorescent bulbs, LED bulbs and high-efficiency incandescents. All are significantly more expensive than traditional light bulbs, but offer energy and costs savings over the long run.
