Have a Merry Energy-Conscious Christmas!
Christmas lighting is a tradition that brings pleasure to almost everyone. As a child I can remember begging my parents to drive around area neighborhoods that were known for their magnificent displays.

Here are some ways to minimize our energy consumption while still enjoying the splendor of the season.
