Bright Ideas for Holiday Lighting

Friday, November 29, 2013

From Seattle City Light

We all know that when holiday lights go up so does your bill, but you can show your holiday spirit and keep your bill manageable by using these tips:
  1. Put your lights on a timer. That way, you won't accidentally leave them on all night and pay for something you didn't enjoy.
  2. Try using mini lights instead of the bigger C7 or C9 bulbs. You'd still be festive, but cut your wattage by 75%.
  3. Want to slow the meter down even more? Try LED lights. They use a small fraction of what traditional incandescent bulbs use. Your old C9 incandescent string uses 170 watts. A string of LED C9 only uses 2.4 watts!
