$500 lights up these neighborhood lights
Margery Conner - December 10, 2008
After reading Brian Dipert’s paean to energy-efficient LED Christmas lights, I pulled out these photos of my neighbor’s Christmas lights. Unlike those hill-folk in the Truckee-Donner area, we don’t go in for subtle displays in the rural areas of San Luis Obispo County, California. If a couple of strands of lights look good, just think how great a myriad of strands surrounding 20 blow-up figures will be! My neighbor’s normal electric bill for the month: $50. For the month of December: $500. Yeah, those LEDs sound pretty good to me, too, Brian.
And another “plug”: You have until January 19 to submit your paper proposals on LED driver/control/thermal management for EDN’s Designing with LEDs Workshop.
