A gradual ban of production and sale of incandescent electric lamps will be introduced starting from July 1, 2012, Tengrinews.kz reports citing the information department of Kazakhstan Ministry of Industry and New Technologies.

"Following the global experience and for the purpose of energy-saving in Kazakhstan and in line with the new Kazakhstan Law On energy saving and increasing power efficiency, the ban on production and sale of incandescent electric lamps of 100W and higher will be introduced on July 1, 2012. The lamps of 75W and higher will be banned on January 1, 2013, and the ones over 25W will be taken out of use on January 1, 2014," the Ministry stated.

The draft law On energy saving and increasing power efficiency was approved by Kazakhstan Government on August 27, 2011. The law was adopted this year. It is aimed at modernization of the economy and ensuring energy sustainability in the country.

Recently Majilis deputy Maira Aissina declared that she failed to save any money or reduce power consumption through using energy-saving lamp bulbs during a year-long experiment. She also raised the issue of cost of the energy-saving lamps that is several times higher than that of the regular lamps. Besides, according to the deputy, the issue of disposal of power-saving lamps is not resolved either.
