California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine,
Rhode Island, & Vermont
Ban Fluorescent Lamps!

California banned fluorescent lamps, both CFLs and linear fluorescent lamps, joining Vermont’s ban in May, and the EU’s ban in December. California went beyond Vermont’s ban on 4’ lamps, by banning linear fluorescent tubes up to 8’ long.

We chased down the legislative language and found the following

effective date information for the CA ban:

  • Screw or bayonet base CFLs are prohibited on and after

       January 1, 2024.

  • Pin-based CFLs are prohibited on or after January 1, 2025.

  • Linear fluorescent lamps (aka fluorescent tubes) are prohibited

      on or after January 1, 2025.

With fluorescent lamps consuming 32 watts and filled with hazardous gasses, their 12-watt, non-toxic LED counterparts are clearly the future!
