‘Tis the season to save

Looking for a way to green your tree or house decorations this holiday season? Grabbing some LEDs for the tree could really help keep the electricity bill down while conserving energy.

From Progress Energy:

“The Electric Power Research Institute indicates the average electricity cost to light a holiday tree with LEDs is 13 to 17 cents per holiday season, compared to $6 to $10 dollars for incandescent lights. Those who put up large outdoor displays can realize even bigger savings. If you are considering new lights, look into LEDs. Although they cost more upfront, LED lights last longer than incandescents while delivering significant energy savings.”
