MT's Laurel Chamber Celebrates the Holidays by Saving Energy

To mark the holiday season, we offer something a bit ‘lighter’: the Christmas tale of Montana’s Laurel Chamber of Commerce, which this year added new sparkle to its downtown holiday decorations by swapping out more than 1,000 bulbs with new energy-efficient lights. The new bulbs are expected to last 40 holiday seasons!

“For the first time, we proudly present the community with street decorations that are newly rewired and include all new LED bulbs,” Chamber Executive Secretary Joanne Flynn said.

An article in the local Montana newspaper describes the chamber project and the advantages of LEDs (light-emitting diodes), such as lower energy consumption, longer lifetime, improved physical robustness, and smaller size.
