Incandescent light bulbs outnumber LEDs across BC

Incandescent light bulbs still rule in BC, despite energy performance standards brought in by the federal government a few years ago that have led many retailers to phase them out. Susie Rieder with BC Hydro explains more than three-quarters of people across the province say they have at least one incandescent bulb in their home. “In those homes that have at least one incandescent, the average number is about 17, so these remain the most widely used type of bulb in BC.” Rieder adds LED bulbs use much less energy that incandescent ones.
