Bright lights, low bills

Household LED Lights are sold in local stores. They're also available to members of Horry Electric through our Online Energy Efficiency Store.

Horry Electric Cooperative has a decorating tip that can save you some green and help you avoid seeing red when your January power bill lands in your mailbox. This year, try trimming the tree with LED lights.

LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, use 70 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. They last up to 10 times longer, and they stay cool to the touch, reducing the risk of fire. Bonus: LEDs are made of epoxy, not glass, making them much more durable than other lights.

Available in a variety of colors, shapes and lengths, LED lights are more expensive than old-fashioned incandescents, but you’ll make that money back in energy savings over time. Just be sure to follow label directions regarding indoor or outdoor use, and when buying any holiday lighting product, look for the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) label, which means an independent testing group has thoroughly checked the product for safety hazards such as fire and shock.
