How Much Is Your Electricity Bill?
The most common question people ask about Oly Lightstravaganza is “how much is your electricity bill?!?”, assuming we spend bazillions of dollars to power the display. Not so, owing in large part to the display being composed primarily of LED lights, which are far more efficient than traditional incandescent lighting.
How Many Lights Can I Plug In Together?
There are two parts to the “How many lights” question – the number of lights strings that can be connected together, and the number of light strings that can be on a single circuit. Before I go too far please remember that I’m not an electrician so if your house burns down because you followed my advice, don’t sue me.
The Environmental Effects of Holiday Lighting
Holiday lighting is a long standing tradition. Each year, cities and residents turn their holiday lights on, setting a festive, cozy tone for the winter season. We believe neighborhood light displays like Oly Lightstravaganza encourage neighbors to come out and meet each other. Neighbors building relationships with other neighbors promotes a variety of good things: familiarity, awareness and improved public safety. Over the years many a neighborhood project has had its genesis in a conversation between neighbors while visiting our display.
