California ban on almost all fluorescent lamps « on: September 21, 2022, 02:36:15 PM » Author: Ugly1
Governor Newsome of California just signed Assembly Bill AB2208. Compact fluorescent lamps with screw or bayonet bases cannot be sold in California after 1-1-2024. Linear fluorescent lamps with any type of base, and compact fluorescent lamps with pin type bases cannot be sold in California after 1-1-2025.(With some exceptions
for special lamps.) Vermont was the first state to pass similar legislation some months ago.

Not at all surprised to hear this coming from CA, I just hope most other states don't follow.

Does the ban affect the fluorescent lamps for reptiles and fish?

I believe those are special ones and probably won't be banned

Of course... well at least I have a lifetime supply of some of the basic types to use in the future, along with ballasts and a decent amount of fixtures.

Welp, can't say I'm surprised, thankfully I have enough of most standard sized lamps to last me into the foreseeable future.

I have a feeling that these bans will prevent private customers from ordering lamps online to have them shipped directly to California addresses?

I live in California, I understand the reasoning behind some of the bans, but as a lighting enthusiast I’m still kind of disappointed by new lamp bans here.

I’ve always been interested in all kinds of lighting, mainly incandescent and HID, and especially all kinds of sodium lamps (HPS/LPS). I’ll tolerate LED but I’m not a fan of it.

The thing about lamp discontinuations and bans that really bothers me is that these lamps become harder to obtain in the future for collecting and to have a supply that I would use in fixtures for my enjoyment. In my dream house, I am thinking of having a mix of preheat linear fluorescent and preheat non-integrated CFL chandelier fixtures and having these bans in place makes me worried about running out of lamps that I enjoy using and getting them shipped here would make it more expensive because I would need to send these lamps to an out of state forwarding service, which can drastically increase shipping costs. I wonder if these lamp bans would affect my ability to import lamps from abroad.

Yeah, I heard. I think the ban on gas heaters is actually a good thing, since heat isn’t really needed in a lot of places in California and it should be an easy way to help reduce some emissions.
