Holiday Lights

Here are some tips to stay safe and save money this holiday season:

  1. LED holiday lights are the way to go! They use up to 80% less energy and are brighter, safer, more durable and last longer than traditional light strings. They’re easier to install too – up to 24 strings of LEDs can be connected end-to-end without overloading a wall socket. Get more tips at com/business-winter. #sdge #SDGEassist
  2. Before climbing ladders to string outdoor lights, check for overhead power lines on your roof. Always keep at least 10 feet away from overhead lines. Never place yourself or any object, such as a string of lights, in a position that risks contact with a power line—the result can be fatal. Get more tips at com/business-winter. #sdge #SDGEassist
  3. Set timers for holiday lights to turn on and off automatically. Keep light displays on during the evening and turn them off overnight while your business is closed. Get more tips at com/business-winter. #sdge #SDGEassist
  4. Before stringing lights on outdoor trees, make sure tree limbs haven’t grown into or near power lines. Branches, entire trees and even the ground adjacent to a tree can become energized when trees contact power lines. Get more tips at com/business-winter. #sdge #SDGEassist
