Kazakhstan deputy Maira Aissina made a year-long experiment, but failed to save anything through using energy-saving light bulbs, Tengrinews.kz reports. “I used them in my apartment for a whole year. I put them in all rooms, but I've registered no saving. Each bulb costs 800 tenge ($5). How will the retired people afford them? They burn out in only one month and then have to be replaced. There is nothing like a 5-year warranty, because they are made in China or Turkey. The disposal is not regulated either. We don’t know what to do with these bulbs. We have got superintendents in Nursai (the residential complex where the deputies live). We bring our bulbs to them in a bag, but we don’t know what they do with them. You also know that they have a negative affect on people's health. The problems are not solved this way,” deputy Aissina said. “You have adopted the law on energy saving without us (the period when Majilis was dissolved and Senate had to adopt the laws all by itself), even though we have suspended it in the previous Majilis hearings. We are not ready for such a transfer. We are calling for a gradual ban of incandescent lamps. But what can we offer instead of them?” she told Kazakhstan Minister of Industry and New Technologies, who attended the government meeting in the Majilis. However, Maira Aissina’s statement was not tagged a question but just a topic for discussion and did not require an answer. By Renat Tashkinbayev
