MOSCOW, September 20. /TASS/. The ban of incandescent bulbs with power above 50 W can be held not soon – only in case of fulfillment of certain conditions, this process can take from one to several years. This at a press conference in TASS said the Deputy energy Minister Anton Inyutsyn.
“In our view there are key conditions that the government must create and only after that these limitations could be proposed to the government for introduction,” he said.
Inyutsin noted that we are talking about creating high-quality and affordable alternative to incandescent lamps, the development of private industry in this sector, the introduction of mandatory certification and the introduction of the warranty period for the bulb.
“If the state prohibits something, the alternative must cost real money to pay off, to be of high quality and affordable,” he added.
Earlier it was reported that the energy Ministry of Russia is considering the possibility of a ban of circulation of incandescent lamps with power more than 50 watts. While Researchers noted that it is only on considering such a proposal: “you Need to weigh whether the industry is to replace these volumes”.
