Use Energy Star decorative lights to save energy

Contributed

Energy Star-qualified decorative light strings consume 70 percent less energy than conventional incandescent light strands. If all decorative light strings sold in America this year were Energy Star-qualified, we would save over 700 million kilowatt-hours (kwh) of electricity a year.
Decorative lights that earn the Energy Star :
• can last up to 10 times longer than traditional incandescent strands.
• are cool to the touch, reducing the risk of fire.
• are available in a variety of colors, shapes, and lengths.
