LVE Offers Advice For Seasonal Decorations

christmas lights

Residents of Northwestern Wyoming who plan to decorate the outsides of their homes for the holiday season will find it most economical to do so with the new technology LED lights.  Lower Valley Energy Spokesman Brian Tanabe says while the initial cost for a string of LED lights is higher than the traditional incandescent lights, the savings in operating them are significant.  Taking a string of 100 traditional lights and running it for 24 hours will cost about 60¢ per day.  Tanabe says add strings and the entire month of December, that begins adding up.  However, he says a string of 100 LEDs will run about 8¢ a day to operate.  With multiple strings, he says the savings grow and grow.  Tanabe points out that since LEDs draw less power, more can be strung together, they are longer lasting, and they remain cool to the touch.  Furthermore, we all know the frustration of finding the burned out bulb that caused the whole string not to light – Tanabe says LED strings remain lit when one light malfunctions since they do not use filaments to light up.   If you are looking for further savings, Tanabe suggests using a timer.  Currently, Tanabe says the electricity rate from the cooperative is about 5¢ per kilowatt-hour which is among the lowest rates in the country.
