Manage your electricity usage and bill increase
Most people use more than one string of lights to show their Christmas spirit. A household that uses 10 strings of lights will spend $10.00 to $15.00 over the course of a month (if using mini incandescent lights). That same household would spend $1.50 to $2.50 with the same amount of LED lights. If you are like one of Pogo Energy’s Christmas-obsessed employees whose houses can be seen glowing from outer space, the savings is even more dramatic. She uses 7 strands of icicle lights, 4 strings of lights to cover the fence in her front yard, 2 strings on the porch, 25 strings to wrap the trees in her front yard, 10 strings draped from the branches, 5 strings to outline flower beds, 4 strings to outline the roof of her house, a big inflatable Santa, and light up candy canes (we might need to plan an intervention). With incandescent lights, her electricity cost increases $250.00 to $305.00 for the month. The same amount of LED lights would cost her $35.00 to $42.00.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that incandescent lights will cost you more money year after year when compared to LED lights. All we are trying to say is that Christmas lights are awesome, but decorating with Christmas lights can end up costing you. Stay in control and save money this holiday season. Learn the truth about how much your Christmas cheer is costing you. Simple adjustments and changing your everyday habits can help you save money during the winter months.
Happy Holidays from everyone at Pogo Energy!
