Its the Holiday Season and running those Christmas Lights can really jack up your energy costs.. A great solution for this is changing for traditional (incandescent) Christmas lights to LED Christmas lights.
Cherie Jacobs, a Progress Energy spokeswoman, says:
Running 10 strands of 100 LED light bulbs during evenings for the month of December will cost about 70 cents.
• Running 10 strands of 100 conventional light bulbs during evenings for the month of December will cost about $7 — 10 times as much.
The Electric Power Research Institute says if seasonal lights nationwide were replaced with LED lighting, carbon emissions could be reduced by as much as 400,000 tons per year and electricity cost savings would exceed $250 million.
