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. To help you get started, we’ll even give you a strand of LED holiday lights and a light timer for free!
You can bring in a strand of incandescent holiday lights to recycle and exchange for free LED holiday lights. We have your choice of multi-colored and white LED lights, and new for 2017 you have your choice of either standard or mini bulb sizes.
Also new for 2017, we are collecting non-perishable food donations for the Stoughton Food Pantry. If you bring in one or more food items, you will receive your choice of an indoor or outdoor holiday light timer.
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!
This program offering runs through December 21, while supplies last.
