LED Christmas Lights

I just took advantage of a great savings on LED Christmas lights.  If you live near a Home Depot Store, they are currently offering a nice savings on these new low-energy holiday lights when you recycle your old ones. 

If you bring in even one string of incandescent minis or C-7 lights to recycle, they will give you a coupon good for $3.00 off each box of LED lights.  (up to 5 boxes) Some of their LED lights are marked down right now so I got 5 boxes of these white lights which were regularly $9.99 for $3.49 a box! 

It’s amazing how much energy they really do save over the Christmas season. Here is a comparison of three types of holiday lights for 30 days of usage at 7 hours per day:

600 LED lights- 45 cents

600 incandescent mini lights-$6.00

600 incandescent C-7 lights-$31.30

Also, check with your local electric company.  Many offer incentives and savings to their customers this time of year to encourage the purchase of lower energy holiday lighting!
