Looking for ways to save this holiday season?

Efficiency Nova Scotia is pleased to once again offer the LED Holiday Light Exchange in conjunction with the HRM Christmas Tree Lighting.

When you come for the event  - November 23rd at 6 pm look for the Efficiency Nova Scotia tent where you can receive a set of energy efficient LED holiday lights in exchange for two sets of your old holiday lights. 

Last year there were over 100 light exchanges held through the Holiday Light Exchange program and close to 20,000 traditional holiday lights were collected and recycled responsibly. The program resulted in an energy savings of over 270,000 kilowatt hours during the holiday season.

Efficiency Nova Scotia is the independent, non-profit organization helping homeowners and businesses use energy better. More than 100,000 customers have participated in Efficiency programs and services since January 2011.
