The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA 2007), was signed by President George W. Bush on December 19, 2007. Its purpose was to move the United States toward greater energy independence and security, to increase production of clean renewable fuels, and to establish new and challenging energy efficiency standards for products, public buildings and vehicles. In addition to covering issues ranging from fuel economy standards for cars and trucks, to renewable fuel and electricity, to training programs for a “green collar” workforce, EISA 2007 also set the federal mandatory energy efficiency standards for appliances and lighting.
EISA 2007 legislation, Subtitle B, Section 321 established a phase-out schedule for 40, 60, 75 and 100-watt General Service Incandescent lamps. The effective dates are shown in the table below.
