Fluorescent light ban in September 2023

End of halogen light bulbs spells brighter and cleaner future

Save money, energy and carbon emissions

The government plans to start phasing out high-energy fluorescent light bulbs in September 2023.

The decision to phase out all mercury-containing light sources comes after a public comment process that closed in July 2021.


The timing of this decision effectively means that the largest category of mercury-containing light sources, linear fluorescent lamps, will be banned by September 2023.

Plan and prepare early!

As individual light sources are gradually banned, early planning is essential. It is worthwhile, both in terms of price and electricity costs, to switch to energy-efficient light sources at an early stage. Businesses can avoid rising costs by preparing the switch in good time.

Why switch to LED

Making the switch to LED light bulbs offers significant energy savings over incandescent, halogen and compact fluorescent alternatives.


On average, LEDs consume 80% less energy when compared to incandescent light bulbs.

  • long service life

  • high energy efficiency

  • flexibility with regard to light color

  • excellent photometric values

If you have any concerns about making the switch to LED

Don't be put off by the higher purchase price

The higher price of LED lights may seem scary at first. However, the combination of a significantly longer service life and improved efficiency means that LED lighting will pay for itself after a few years, depending on the application.

The recent increases in energy costs are also helping to further reduce the time in which you see payback. Recently, we have seen ROI’s (Return of Investments) go from 3 years to under 1 year with new energy contracts costs.

Something else to be aware of is the AIA, - The Annual Investment Allowance. This government scheme allows UK businesses to deduct the full value of an item that qualifies for annual investment allowance (AIA) from your profits before tax. LED lighting is a qualified item.
