Trump Cancels Plan to Phase Out Less Energy Efficient Light Bulbs

The move slows a years-long push by Congress and past administrations to switch Americans to LED bulbs and other lighting using less electricity.

President Donald Trump told reporters Wednesday the Energy Department canceled the pending phaseout of the targeted incandescent bulbs because “what’s saved is not worth it.”

“And price was another thing,” he said.
