Keep the Holidays Safe
The holiday season is here! All you have to do is take a walk or go for a ride in the evening to see the sights of the season. There is an abundance of festive lights and displays in many yards and windows. Please review the following checklist to make sure that your holiday decorating is done safely:
Also remember that all of those festive lights and decorations will increase the electric bill. Holiday baking and entertaining will contribute to a higher electric bill. It is typical for most customers to have an increase in their electric bill of $7 - $10 from late November to early January. A customer that has the yard and house full of decorations could see an even higher increase.
As an example, a string of 25, C7 outdoor lights will cost a penny an hour to operate. As you start adding those strings together the cost can quickly increase. And those 90 ane 120 watt floodlights to illuminate Santa or the nativity set will also add up over time.
By taking all of the proper precautions, your family can have a safe and enjoyable holiday season.
