Although some will find this frustrating, this is good news as LEDs bring lower energy bills, a reduced carbon footprint, and much greater lighting efficiency. And, as with any change, electricians such as Wiring Works have a role to play in helping their customers get to know what can and can't be used under the ban, and which alternatives to go for.
So exactly what bulbs are affected?
This first wave of the ruling affects GU10 halogen spotlights and PAR30 floodlights. Low voltage halogen spotlights and other bulbs with a B level energy rating are not included. Stores that already have existing bulbs in stock are still allowed to sell them, but they can't order any more.
