SYLVANIA Released Results of the 4th Annual Socket Survey

Nov 18, 2011 SYLVANIA has released results of the 4th annual SYLVANIA Socket Survey— the industry’s only measurement/ barometer of the changing lighting landscape and public attitudes about efficient lighting and awareness of the upcoming national phase-out of incandescent light bulbs— starting in January with the 100 watt.  This year’s benchmark survey revealed that for the first time a majority of American (55 percent) are aware of the 2007 congressional legislation mandating the phase-out of inefficient lighting.

Key findings of the survey included:

·         73% of respondents said it is important to them that their bulbs are “made in America”

·         While 56% are eager to use more energy efficient options (e.g., halogens, CFLs, LEDs), one third of respondents admitted they are worried about the phase out.

·         For a third year in a row, 13 percent said that they plan to save up or “hoard” 100-watt incandescent bulbs

·         While overall awareness of upcoming legislation is high, only 31% of Americans know specifically that the 100-watt light bulb will no longer be made after January 1, 2012

·         62% of respondents reported that they have changed or switched out a light bulb within the last year for energy efficiency reasons
