Deck the halls with efficient holiday lights

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), if all the decorative light strings sold in America this year were ENERGY STAR qualified, we would save over 2 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to nearly 300,000 cars!

ENERGY STAR qualified decorative light strings many which feature LED technology consume 75% less energy than conventional incandescent lights strands. ENERGY STAR qualified decorative light strings:

  • Last up to 10 times longer than traditional incandescent strands.
  • Are cool to the touch, reducing the risk of fire.
  • Do not have moving parts, filaments or glass, so they are much more durable and shock-resistant than other light strings.
  • Are available in a variety of colors, shapes and lengths.
If saving energy puts you in a holiday mood, then now is the time to make the switch to LEDs. For a limited time you can receive a $3 instant reward on strings of LED holiday lights when you purchase them at selected stores. Visit holidaylights for a list of participating retailers. This offer ends December 31, 2008; some restrictions apply.
