Even before the entry into force in 2009 adopted a law on energy conservation, developed on the instructions of the President, many Russians began to make stocks of banned bulbs.In November - December sales lamps 100W increased.As a result of the major networks such lamps are gone before the

new year.

Nevertheless prohibited bulb is on sale in small shops and markets.And for those residues is not enough, some companies have already began to produce incandescent lamps of 95 watts."Vedomosti" found two companies to implement this idea."These lamps are literally disperse", - recognized vendors.

production 95 watt bulb does not break the law, manufacturers are sure: guests at a lamp power has never been, but the law on technical regulation abolished the guests who are not related to safety, and the company has received the certificate on the basis of technical conditions, can produce such lamps.The power lamp, marked in 95W, 100W can be even more: by standard deviations like lamp power error can be up to 10 watts.In any case, the law does not spelled out even responsible for the production and sale of incandescent light bulbs of 100 watts.

average retail price of incandescent lamps - 10-20 rubles.Energy-saving lamps per year sold about 40 million in Russia, an average of 150-300 rubles.Before the ban, 100-watt bulb was the way in sales, but if the 95-watt bulbs will be banned, people will switch to 75 watts (the possibility of a ban in 2013 is contained in the Energy Conservation Law).
