‘Tis the Season to Save

This holiday season, consumers and businesses are more excited than ever about LED (light emitting diode) holiday lights. This “green” technology saves energy, helps preserve the environment, and puts more green in people’s pocketbooks too.

What’s more, Focus on Energy, Wisconsin’s energy efficiency and renewable energy initiative, is offering financial incentives toward the purchase of strings of LED holiday lights to save consumers even more green.

Holiday lights that use light emitting diode (LED) technology:

  • Use approximately 90% less energy than standard incandescent holiday lights
  • Feature up to a 20-year life
  • Produce almost no heat
  • Don’t have glass bulbs to break or replace
Now through Dec. 31, 2007, Focus on Energy is offering a $3 Instant Reward on the purchase of strings of LED holiday light sets at participating Ace Hardware, Menards, Mills Fleet Farm, Milaeger’s, Reinders and True Value Hardware locations.
