Ontario Green Energy Act « on: June 18, 2022, 05:13:53 PM » Author: joseph_125
I was looking at fluorescent lamps on AMRE Supply and I noticed several fluorescent lamps had this note on the page:

Quote
** This Light Bulb is not available for purchase in Ontario under the Ontario Green Energy Act. Please see alternative lamps below for other options **

First time I heard of such a regulation and the "banned" lamps are common types that I could easily run into Home Depot or Lowe's to buy cases of so I'm not sure why that site had this notice on a few fluorescent lamps.

Figures. Several states in the USA banned high CRI T12s, but strangely California has not.

Interestingly, I noticed that it was already repealed in 2018:
