It’s now possible to have lots of Christmas lights and much lower electricity consumption than before — all thanks to LED lights available everywhere.
LED’s come in every configuration imaginable, use 15% of the electricity of incandescent lights, and last a life time. For those of us who want to save even more electricity we can now get solar powered LED lights. Our neighbor, Betty Hanacek, got a couple of strings and reports that even on the north side of her house there is enough solar energy to light her front yard display from dusk until bed time.
Another green reminder is to recycle cardboard boxes and wrapping paper. Better yet, reuse the wrapping paper next year and save some trees.
Have a Happy Holiday!
