Government Sponsored - halogen replacement program

Every so often we get one of those phones calls.
"Hello - I'm from the Government and we want to replace your halogen lights...."
..
So is there STILL, a program to waste more money on house lighting, or is this just another scam.. :-(

Sounds like a scam to me, they wouldn't say they are "from the government". I haven't heard of any new programs to replace lights since the CFLs to replace incandescents quite a few years ago.

I hadn't heard of anything but google has:

It could have been something under this scheme.
