fluorescent lighting - now banned in Colorado

Navigating Colorado’s Fluorescent Lighting Ban: Expert Advice from The Light Center

Starting from January 1, 2025, Colorado has implemented a ban on the sale and distribution of fluorescent lamps, including CFLs and linear fluorescent tubes, as part of the “Clean Lighting Act.” This legislation is focused on phasing out mercury-containing lighting products and promoting the adoption of energy-efficient alternatives.


For businesses in Colorado, this means transitioning from fluorescent lighting to energy-efficient LED alternatives. This may involve replacing existing fluorescent lamps and fixtures with LED lamps and luminaires, which presents both challenges and opportunities for businesses across the state. 

At The Light Center, we understand the impact this ban can have on your operations and are here to guide you through the transition with expert advice and support.
