          The region’s debt began to lead to a stop of infrastrukturen banning of incandescent lamps can not stop

          The energy Ministry called for a ban of the famous bulb is more powerful than 50 watts. These familiar yellow cozy “fluorescent lights” are cheaper than favorably with those of most modern, so-called lamps of moonlight. Although such a ban may cause understandable irritation, it has quite a powerful justification. This ban should not be the only one.

          The Ministry of energy launched an initiative about a ban of incandescent lamps of some power. 8 years ago, Russia has already banned the lamp is more powerful 100 watt, and since the office does not leave attempts to expand that restriction.

          In 2014, the energy Ministry has already tried to ban all incandescent, but to no avail. Last year was announced an initiative of the ban on the circulation of incandescent lamps of 60 and 75 watts is the most common in our country, but it also was not done. Now the Deputy Minister of energy Anton Inyutsyn promised before the end of the year to consider a ban on the circulation of bulbs above 50 watt – that is, all the same the most popular sixty – semidesyatiletnego.

          The arguments of the Ministry for the last 8 years has not changed: the share of lighting accounts for about 13% of the annual energy consumption in Russia. Energy saving light bulb 10-watt Shine as brightly as usual with a power of 90 W, the lifetime of energy saving lamps in six to twelve times higher than that of incandescent lamps.

          The cost of modern led bulbs is decreasing every year, although, according to Insana, yet not enough: “we must continue to create conditions so that those light bulbs cost as, for example, in India – 1.5–2 dollar. We are all the same, if you bring the relevant prices, cost about 3.5 dollars”. The number of lamp manufacturers in recent years has increased significantly in the market there are more than 600 companies.

          The arguments of the opponents of the ban of incandescent lamps also unchanged. This time they announced the first Deputy Chairman of state Duma Committee on energy, the representative of LDPR Valery Seleznev, who in an interview with RT said, “Legislative coercion, bans any good for people not to quote, so this kind of initiative does not support…

          We must first understand what number of incandescent lamps over 50 watts is by the population. Because it may be another blow to the pocket of the ordinary citizen. All you need to do not compulsory, and the use of incentives, which would really interested citizens.”

          Actually, such arguments, plus, most likely, the work of lobbyists for the manufacturers of incandescent and lead to the fact that these obsolete lighting devices continue to occupy a significant market share. Incentives, which says Seleznev, is also possible, here only it is unlikely they will appeal to consumers and MPs.

          Today, low consumer tariff for electricity in Russia is subsidized at the expense of industrial enterprises. Therefore, saving costs for electricity for ordinary Russians yet does not cover the cost of more energy efficient and more expensive light bulbs.

          But if the cost of electricity for the citizens will be brought to industrial, it will lead to mass public dissatisfaction, and it will be much more serious than irritation about the ban of incandescent lamps.

          The desire of sellers of electricity in multiples to raise tariffs for the population openly told the CEO of the Nonprofit partnership of guaranteeing suppliers of electricity and retail companies Natalia Nevmerzhitskaya in 2016, when the topic ban was discussed last time. According to her, first it would be better to bring the rate to the economically justified level, and then to consider whether further encourage citizens through the introduction of administrative restrictions on the use of certain energopribor.

          Of course, if electricity prices have doubled, people will start to use every opportunity for savings. But note the situation with heating in many homes – many have to use the heaters. In addition, in multi-storey buildings people do cook on electric stoves. So call Nevmerzhitskiy will mean not just a blow to the pocket and the eversion of the pocket inside out.

          Therefore, encouraging the purchase of energy-saving lamps at the expense of tariffs is not possible. And the other way to switch to LEDs, in addition to outright ban the old bulbs, remains.

          Last ban, recall, was introduced gradually in 2009 decided, but prior to 2011, all interested customers can purchase 100-watt bulbs, and manufacturers to sell off existing stockpiles. Therefore, if you introduce a ban, relatively speaking, from 2019, there are no serious problems will arise. And, besides, during this time, there will be another wave of price reduction modern lamps.

          To the question of why you need to move to energy efficient light bulbs, is easy to answer. Because we can’t afford to be inefficient and energy is also a concern. Energy efficient bulb, energy efficient homes, individual meters, individual adjustment of heating will allow the country to save serious amount of money, which now is simply squandered.

          By the way, the separate collection of waste – not too fantasy crazy environmentalists, and the possibility of efficient use of resources. As to “stimulate” citizens to separate their garbage, and utilities – to handle it appropriately? Also only only one way – prohibitions and penalties.

          The same applies to environmentally hazardous waste, ranging from batteries and ending with plastic bottles and bags. Given the environmental hazard of batteries, their cost would be good also to ban and leave in the batteries. And they sell with a commitment to donate then scrapped.

          With plastic bags and plastic non-biodegradable packaging in General – should act according to the example of Kenya and several other African countries to ban their importation and manufacture. Purchase from the store you can convey in a paper bag.

          Bottles – plastic and glass – must have significant collateral value to the citizens gave them for reuse. Otherwise trashy urban parks and suburban forests can not cope.

          In General, the prohibition of waste burning electricity of incandescent lamps must only be the first step towards increasing the efficiency of the Russian economy, ending a shameful waste of resources.

          Yes, light bulbs are cheap – as plastic bags and bottles, disposable batteries and more. But, as the proverb says: we are not so rich to buy cheap things. And the way to stimulate there can be only one outright ban.
