    Ah, the Green Acres method, limiting devises that curtail total power usage in a home. Is that what you are suggesting as a better alternative to a thermostat limiiting during an emergency? Cool with me but I think you will find the general public will oppose it more than they did the thermostat method proposal from 2008 you linked.

    I do not know who cfr is but this report was conducted and released by Dick Cheney's Energy Task Force comprised of his fellow oil company executives.

    Explain that !
    It reduces loading of the system without leaving customers completely without power altogether.

    can't think of anyone more apt to lie to the public than a group of energy executives.

    Myself, I'm all for giving government agencies all the support I can, a little protection is better than none, especially since the sellers hold all the cards.

    Caveat emptor (let the buyer aware) is a license for sellers to steal, another court approved perk for sellers, and another way to screw the buyers who have no lobbyists, or representation of any kind, to plead their cases. Yes, you can sue, but court cases cost more money than most people have.

Now the fact that energy saving bulbs last longer on average (way longer) and cost way less to run should factor in, but as we all know, the consumer is ignorant of such things and only want short term visible results. I think I have one old type bulb in the house, but that is due to the lamp ("it looks pretty" is the comment in this house).. and as soon as the lamp can be replaced then it goes.

    Kiss your 100-watt lightbulb goodbye - San Jose Mercury News

    As of Saturday, what used to be a 100-watt light bulb manufactured and sold in California will have to use 72 watts or less. The 72-watt replacement bulb, also called an energy-saving halogen light, will provide the same amount of light, called lumens, for lower energy cost.

    Similar new standards for traditional 75-watt, 60-watt and 40-watt incandescent bulbs will go into effect in California over the next few years, with wattages reduced to 53, 43 and 29 respectively.

    The new rule does not ban incandescent light bulbs; it just requires those bulbs to be 25 to 30 percent more efficient. And it only affects incandescent light bulbs manufactured in 2011 or later, not those already in use or on store shelves.
    I haven't purchased one of those for at least 5 years... Easy. Bye.
