December 27, 2017 (San Diego) -- Incandescent light bulbs have been around since Thomas Edison’s era.  But starting January 1st, it will be illegal to manufacture them in California.  Our state will be the first in the nation to phase out the incandescent bulbs under new energy-saving standards set to take effect nationally in two years, standards put in place by President George W. Bush’s administration.
