Benefits of LED Lights
LED bulbs have numerous benefits when compared to traditional incandescent lighting.
  • Saves energy: LED lights are up to 90 percent more efficient than incandescent lights.
  • Long lasting: LED lights consist of solid-state construction, making them less likely to break when compared to conventional lights. According to the Department of Energy, the best white LEDs have been found to have a useful life of about 35,000 hours, or four years of continuous operation. Also, when one light goes out on a decorative holiday strand,  the others stay lit.
  • Safety: The epoxy plastic that encapsulates LED bulbs is cool to the touch.

This program is designed for Roseville Electric residential utility customers as an energy conservation measure. Participants must bring a valid California ID and a copy of their current City of Roseville utility bill to the Exploration Center. The offer is limited to three LED holiday light strands per household, per year. The program opens on Nov. 5, 2013 and is limited to stock on hand.
