New Bill to Raise Energy Efficiency and Encourage Saving Measure

The new energy bill, Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, signed by President Bush has meaningful purpose not only to increase efficient in automobile industrial but also the daily used household electronic product.

New regulation requires that by 2012 to 2014, all light bulbs must use 25 to 30 percent less energy than they do today. It also promoting more efficient home electronic devices and require energy consumption to be disclosed to consumers. That including your PC, monitor, set top box, DVR and flat screen TV, power adapter. Battery charger was excluded from the Art but will be reviewed if changes are need in the future in July 2011 by the Department of Energy

Folk, it's still a long journey ahead but I welcome more competitive, higher efficiency and energy saving devices any days. For once, Bush did something alright.
