Green Scene Tip of the Month
Holiday LED Lights

 LED lights consume 75 percent less energy than traditional incandescent lights;  the U.S. Department of Energy says LED lights also offer the following advantages:

Safer: LEDs are much cooler than incandescent lights, reducing the risk of combustion or burnt fingers.
Sturdier: LEDs are made with epoxy lenses, not glass, and are much more resistant to breakage.
Longer lasting: The same LED string could still be in use 40 holiday seasons from now.
Easier to install: Up to 25 strings of LEDs can be connected end-to-end without overloading a wall socket.

Home Depot on Rosedale Highway will be a dropoff location  for holiday lights during the holiday season to benefit BARC. 

Infomation from"Bakersfield: PG&E, Home Depot Partner for Holiday Light Exchange."
