Fluorescent Lamps

Starting July 14, 2012, manufacturing or importing most T12 fluorescent lamps will be prohibited. The supply of T12s will eventually run out and customers will have no choice but to upgrade to higher efficiency T8 or T5 lamps and ballasts.

 T12s are being phased out because the federal government passed legislation increasing the minimum efficiency standards of linear fluorescent lamps. Most T12 lamps will not meet these minimum standards.
