1. Check each set of holiday lights for damaged sockets, plugs and cords. Replace anything that looks defective.

2. If you plan to string lights outside, only use lights that are marked for outdoor use.

3. Do not plug in more than three sets of lights to one extension cord, and never run cords under rugs or carpeting.

Energy-Saving Tips to Lighten Your Holiday Load

  • 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.

NES senior energy services specialist, Tony Viglietti, is working to restore Riverside Drive to its original intent.

In the early 1930s, a group of garden clubs got together and decided to dedicate a portion of Riverside Drive as a memorial to those who fought in WWI, WWII and the Korean War. One iris was planted at a time and eventually, the median of the road was covered with them. Over time, however, the median became in disrepair and almost everything that was left was ruined by the tornado of 1998. Tony Viglietti, senior energy services specialist, is undoing that damage and restoring Riverside Drive to its original intent. This time, he set his sights on new trees, and he knew exactly which tree would best represent our brave soldiers.
