Thanks to applying energy-efficient solutions, solar lamps allow to save on costs of energy. Moreover thanks to their properties, operation costs can also be reduced.
Solar and wind energy is widely available and it is an inexhaustible source which can be included to the clean sources, environmentally friendly.
The EU has set new energy efficiency requirements that lamps produced for the EU market need to fulfil as from 1 September 2009.
Traditional incandescent and halogen bulbs will be gradually phased out from the market by the end of 2012. However, particular care was taken to ensure that consumers will find lamp alternatives either offering the same light quality or higher energy savings. Improved incandescent bulbs with halogen technology and light emitting diode (LEDs) lamps will also be available as alternatives to conventional incandescent bulbs, not just compact fluorescent lamps
Improved incandescent bulbs, which also produce light by incandescence, provide exactly the same light quality as conventional bulbs.Lamps that are banned will not be removed from the shop shelves on 1 September. Retailers are allowed to sell their existing stocks.
