Just in case you have not heard about it, the new federal law scheduled to outlaw 100 watt light bulbs has been shot down.
Before being shot down, this new federal law scheduled to take effect in January 2012, outlawed 100 watt incandescent light bulbs. Edison would roll over.
Stay tuned for the fantastic educational video on lighting from Peter Konopka (this training was done before they shot down the new federal law)
