- Replace your old holiday lights with energy-efficient LED lights. Although they cost more initially, LED bulbs use up to 90 percent less energy and last 10 times longer than incandescent lights.
- Set your indoor and outdoor holiday lights on a timer. Just 10 strands lit for 13 hours a day can add more than $50 to a monthly energy bill.
- Limit your usage between two to five hours a day, and turn off lights before you leave the house or go to bed.
