 Power Factor: Policy Implications for the Scale-up of CFL Programs

(32 pages) "This report reviews and summarizes the current findings regarding

the topic of CFL power factor; and explores and identifies related policy

considerations, in order to allow policymakers to make well-informed decisions

that address their specific policy goals. The report does not take sides, but

rather explores the rguments and presents science and economic-based

recommendations based on the best currently available information." US Aid
