Britain to Switch Off Energy-Guzzling Lightbulbs

Britain unveiled plans on Thursday to phase out energy-wasting traditional light bulbs by 2012 to cut the equivalent of a coal-fired power station's carbon dioxide emissions.

The voluntary initiative foresees removing energy-wasting incandescent light bulbs from shops and replacing them with low-energy compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs.

It aims to save up to five million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year by 2012, or the equivalent to the carbon emissions of a typical 1 Giga Watt coal-fired power station.
