Duke Energy Calculator Helps To Figure Cost Of Christmas Lights

Christmas Lights
Christmas Lights

As the Christmas lights go up, in many cases, so will your light bill.

With that in mind, Duke Energy has provided a holiday lighting calculator to help you keep tabs on your bill and save money and energy.     

Six 100-bulb sets of large, incandescent bulbs plugged in six hours every evening can add up to $80 to a monthly power bill.     

L-E-D and other energy saving styles of lights can help to lower that cost, in some cases drastically.

You are also encouraged to carefully check your light sets for bad plugs or frayed wires which could be fire hazards.
