ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the success of the combined efforts of lighting manufacturers, retailers, energy efficiency program sponsors and the Energy Star for Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) program. It presents that the Department of Energy (DOE) sent its latest delisting letter which removes 34 CFL models from Energy Star. This is due to independent, third-party tests showed that actual performance did not comply with the requirements of the program.
