A "Green" Shift in Holiday Lighting


Christmas Decor by Gage Tree Service says environmentally-friendly LED
lighting adds energy efficiency and flexibility to holiday displays

Anchorage, AK (Grassroots Newswire) December 9, 2010 -- Many home and
business owners are looking for ways to build an eco-conscious lifestyle
by using products that have less impact on the environment. According to
Scott Gage of Christmas Decor by Gage Tree Service, this sustainability
movement has been working its way into the holiday season for years
through a variety of products. Now, says Gage, consumers looking for a
"greener Christmas" have options in their holiday decorations -- with LED
technology.

LED lights derive their name from the fact they utilize “light emitting
diodes” to create light. LED Christmas lights are similar to the
traditional Christmas incandescent bulbs except that they do not have a
filament inside that can burn out and take the entire string of bulbs with
it. Instead, they are illuminated by the movement of electrons in a
semi-conductor material.

The movement of these electrons requires much less electricity to provide
that holiday glow. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, if
consumers replaced their conventional holiday lights with eco-friendly
LEDs, at least TWO BILLION KILOWATT HOURS of electricity could be saved
each month. This energy savings could power 200,000 HOMES FOR ONE YEAR!

Christmas Decor by Gage Tree Service, part of the nation’s largest
professional holiday decorating network, is spearheading the effort to
spread the use of LED lights in the Anchorage area.

"The movement we have seen towards LED lighting has been very profound. We
are happy to be a part of this movement to help save energy and resources
for both the planet and for our clients. We're excited to be offering LED
lights to our clients in the Anchorage area," said Gage.

“While we will still offer incandescent lighting to our clients, the
phasing in of LEDs for holiday lighting is heading towards the point where
they will soon represent the vast majority of our holiday decorating
installations,” added Gage. "Our clients want to avoid the high rates they
see on their electric bills after the holidays and they also are becoming
more environmentally conscious. That's when the substantial benefits that
LEDs offer over incandescent lighting become apparent. LEDs really make
good sense. LEDs clearly add not only energy savings of up to 90 percent
over incandescent lighting, but their versatility and beauty really add to
our service package with their flexibility, durability and convenience.”
