That's because the old incandescent bulbs are being phased-out to make way for more energy efficient models.
KNWA hit the streets of Northwest Arkansas this week to find out what people think about the change.
"I feel like we need to make all of the efforts we can to go green and if
light bulbs are an easy and efficient step then we should go for it," said Laura Harvey.
As we talked to more people, we learned that some have already started the process.
"It's not really a big deal because I already have the energy efficient ones," said Stephanie Cooper-Woods, who made the switch once she started paying her own electric bills.
But not everyone is on board with the lighting legislation. For example, a man named Yusuf Sadiq said he likes the idea because it saves money and protects the planet, but he disagrees with the mandatory phase-out of old bulbs.
"People should still have a choice," Sadiq added.
Despite having different opinions, all three of the people we spoke to have purchased energy efficient light bulbs. All three also told KNWA they have the same concern about the new bulbs.
"We have some that are energy efficient," Harvey said. "The only thing I don't like about them is that they do take a little bit longer to get bright."
But she may be surprised to find out that energy efficient light bulbs come in all shapes, sizes and brightness. We'll explain the various options in the next edition of 'GE Bright Ideas'.
