Efficiency Nova Scotia wants to make your Holiday’s a little brighter!
They’ll be joining us at our annual tree lighting ceremony on November 28, 2015 at 6 pm for a Holiday Light Exchange. Bring two sets of old, incandescent Holiday lights and exchange them for a set of brand new LEDs. Friendly energy efficiency experts will also be available to answer your questions and help you learn more ways you can save this holiday season.

Did you know that LED Holiday lights use 90 per cent less electricity than traditional glass Holiday lights? And they last 10 times longer!
If you still have old, incandescent Holiday lights make this the year to switch over to energy saving LEDs. Efficiency Nova Scotia can help you out!
