Do LED or CFL bulbs cause electromagnetic interference? Follow

Similar to other electronics, it is possible for LED and CFL bulbs  to cause electromagnetic interference (EMI). Electromagnetic interference is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). In addition, ENERGY STAR requires CFLs to use ballasts that operate at greater than 40 kHz, and LED drivers that operate at 120Hz which limits the potential for interference.
