Q:  What is the prize that I have the potential to win?

A:  It’s a surprise, but you can be sure that it will be a gift full of holiday cheer.


Q:  Can I have some suggestions on how to make my holiday light display more energy efficient?

A:  LED lights always help conserve energy.  Other ways to be energy efficient- use branded rebates that not only save you money but also provide a guarantee on energy efficiency, limit the time your light display is lit, and use decorations that don’t need to be plugged in to an electrical outlet.
