Trim the Tree, and Your Energy Bills
As we enter the holiday season, Stoughton Utilities is reminding our customers about the benefits and advantages of energy efficient lighting options to help customers trim their holiday energy bill.
Stoughton Utilities customers can bring in four items as a donation to the Stoughton Food Pantry and receive a new string of LED holiday lights and an outdoor light timer or indoor remote controlled outlet!
LED holiday lights use up to 90 percent less energy, cost significantly less to operate, last longer than standard incandescent lights, and also reduce the risk of fire hazards since they do not have the same components that cause traditional lights to burn out or combust. When combined with a timer so you never forget to turn the lights off overnight, your savings increase even more.
This year, upgrade your lights and celebrate safely and economically!
