                In effort to drive the use of energy-efficient light-
                ing nationwide, the American Lighting Association
                (ALA), working in conjunction with the Environ-
                mental Protection Agency, is encouraging its mem-
                bers to step up promotion of the new standard in
                compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs).
                     With Energy Star®-qualified models gaining in
                popularity, the prevalence of the GU24 line-voltage
                socket is more widespread, but consumer confu-
                sion could delay universal acceptance. In a recent
                article published in its Lightrays newsletter, the
                ALA outlines the standard and its two versions – a
                one-piece unit with a combined lamp and ballast,
                and the two-piece model with a ballast that accepts
                a standard four-pin plug-in CFL. There are three
                sizes available: 13 watts (equivalent to a 60-watt in-
                candescent),18 watts (similar to the 75-watt bulb),
                and 26 watts (comparable to a 100-watt tungsten).
                     The article also cites manufacturers that are
                adapting the GU24 socket to their lines, includ-
