SYLVANIA Applauds Energy Bill Lighting Efficiency Standards

New law will give Americans more energy-saving choices

OSRAM SYLVANIA

OSRAM SYLVANIA, the maker of SYLVANIA lighting products, has announced its support for the energy bill being signed into law by President Bush. The legislation calls for a phase-out of inefficient light bulbs, starting in 2012. The new law is expected to increase demand for energy saving lights, resulting in new products and lower prices.

OSRAM SYLVANIA and its parent company pioneered the compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulb and together rank as the world's second-largest producer of light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The company produces more than 50 different ENERGY STAR-rated light bulbs, including dimmable, 3-way and globe-shaped CFL designs, as well as the SYLVANIA Micro Mini Twist bulb, the smallest CFL available in North America.

A 13-watt SYLVANIA Micro Mini Twist CFL produces the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent bulb, while using 75 percent less energy and saving about $50 in energy costs. By using less energy, CFLs reduce CO2 emissions from power plants and help fight global warming. |GlobalGiants.com|
