A Europe-wide ban on incandescent light bulbs is good news for those looking for cheap electricity, according to an environmental charity.
Following agreements signed by European Union members in December last year, a mandatory switch to energy saving bulbs began earlier this month (September 1st).
All clear lamps, equivalent to 100 Watt bulbs or above, must now be of a minimum C class energy rating.
Commenting on the move, Tom Gribbin, senior campaign manager at eco charity Together.com, said the new light bulbs were a "win-win" for both the consumer and the environment.
He claimed supermarket chain Tesco sold more energy saving light bulbs in January than they had in the whole of 2006.
This is evidence customers are happy to make the switch and are buying the new eco-friendly range, he added.
