On Wednesday the production of incandescent light bulbs will stop and 60-watt and 40-watt light bulbs will be banned. However stores will be able to sell their remaining stock.
"A lot of people have changed to the compact fluorescent lights and even some of the LEDs right now because they know its opening. I think because we gave them all the information we have way before today," said Bob Derr, the manager of Builders in Kearney.
The original purchase of a compact fluorescent light is going to be pricier than a traditional bulb, but it is supposed to last longer.
"Longevity of a bulb is going to be better. It's going to take people a little bit of time to get used to florescent part of it because it's a little different light than the incandescent.
LED lights are more expensive but they also are shown to last the longest.
