NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – They’ve been lighting up our lives for years, but now America’s most popular light bulbs are about to become much harder to find.

As CBS 2′s Hazel Sanchez reported Monday, beginning Jan. 1 the traditional 60 and 40 watt light bulbs will be faded out of the market place.

The phaseout is part of the 2007 energy efficiency law signed by former President George W. Bush.  The law requires bulbs to meet tighter efficiency standards.

Eros Corpus, owner of Batteries Plus Bulbs in White Plains, told Sanchez that consumers will still have plenty of other light bulbs to choose from that give off the same amount of light but are more energy-efficient.

“The most important thing is there are options to convert to either Halogens, Compact Fluorescents, or the LEDs,” Corpus said.

While the options still on the market may offer the same amount of light and save energy, they also come with a bigger price tag, Sanchez reported.  A 60 watt incandescent bulb costs about 60 cents, compared to an equivalent compact fluorescent light, which costs about $ 3.50, and a single LED light bulb which can cost as much as $ 18.
