Southern California Edison is teaming up with the city of Costa Mesa to help residents become more energy efficient. The utility and city are launching the Holiday Lamp Exchange program, in which residents can exchange their energy-sucking incandescent holiday lights for more efficient, cooler LED lights. Each household can get up to five soft white or multi-colored LED holiday lights in exchange for five incandescent lights.
The program works on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call Dan Baker, an analyst in the city manager's office, at (714) 754-5156.
