BLOG: IKEA Drops Incandescent Bulbs

By Jim Donovan: IKEA is no longer stocking or selling incandescent light bulbs in its U.S. stores, instead offering longer-lasting and energy-efficient bulbs.

The retailer began phasing out the sale of the light bulbs in August. IKEA’s action comes ahead of federal legislation that would mandate more efficient light bulbs starting in 2012.

IKEA’s available lighting options include the compact fluorescent bulb, LED, halogen and solar-powered lamps. Compact fluorescent, or CFL, bulbs use up to 80 percent less energy and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
