The Energy Department has finalized new energy efficiency standards for metal halide lamp fixtures, which are used in lighting for big box stores and parking lots.

Over 30 years, these standards will help reduce harmful carbon pollution by up to 28 million metric tons–equivalent to the annual electricity use of 3.9 million homes, the Department says.
