You may wonder why you need to retrofit your system now as halogen light bulbs will still be available for purchase. While it is true that you can continue to purchase halogen bulbs as a consumer in 2023, these products are no longer be manufactured. That means as supplies run low, your “less expensive” landscape lighting option will be harder to find and probably increase in price as well.

Distributers and retailers start receiving warning notices in January 2023 for the sale of these products. Full penalties begin in July 2023, with partial penalties being given before then to sellers. For now, consumers will be able to use the halogen lights they already are using and ones purchased in 2023.
