The Government will be replacing all existing bulbs with energy efficient ones as part of efforts to reduce carbon intensity by 40% by 2020, said Power, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin.

He said the move would be done in stages over a three-year period and the sale of such lighting devices would be stopped in 2014.

"It is also part of the government's commitment to reduce carbon emission by about 40% by 2020," he told reporters at his ministry here Thursday....
