It seems the Commerce Clause has now been rewritten to allow the Fed Govt to insert itself into yet another part of our life.
"In the case of electrical appliances, including light bulbs, the goal of most recent regulation has been to reduce consumption of electricity. Since electricity consumption, as a matter of both physics and the economic structure of power generation and distribution, is necessarily a local (i.e. state) matter, any regulation at the federal level would run afoul of the Commerce Clause condition "activities that substantially affect interstate commerce" at least as read by the majority conservative justices in Lopez."
